New SFI Badges!

Today we are pleased to debut our new-design SFI badges!

We think our new badges are way cooler.  Plus, they’ve got some new features we think you’re going to really like.

For starters, many of our badges are based on numbers (points, streaks, etc.), and now those numbers are DYNAMIC…which is to say, your badges can now change day to day, even hour by hour, based on your activity.  For example, the following is the new Power Rank badge for your class.


The number it displays will be your exact position in your class (which can, of course, go up or down depending on your activities and those of the other members of your SFI class).  So, a new fun challenge is to try to improve the number on your badge day to day, week to week, or at least month to month.  With the new dynamic number feature, you have a superb new way of knowing, in near-real-time, how you’re doing and where you need to work harder.

You’ll also notice the gold trim.  This is another new feature of the badges that you can earn.  So while the number on the badge tells you how you’re doing on a micro-level, the “bling” (which comes in bronze, silver, and gold) represents various “achievement tiers” or milestones.  For most badges, you’ll start with the basic version of the badge with no “bling.”  With continued effort, you can then add the bronze, silver, or gold trim.

For the above Power Rank Class badge, being in the top 200 of your class (based on your total VP), earns you the basic badge.  Get into the top 50 to add the bronze trim.  Get into the top 20 to earn the silver trim.  Or make the top 10 in your class to add the gold.

The more precious the metal, the more prestigious the badge is.  The ultimate goal would be to sport gold trim on all your badges!  Wouldn’t that look sensational on your new JMT Gateway?!

For complete details on all our badges including all of the achievement tier qualifications, visit our BADGES GALLERY:


P.S. You’ll also notice at least one brand new badge…and more new badges are on the way.

New Time Zone feature

Time Zone ClocksKnowing what time it is for your affiliates is important, especially when communicating.  To accommodate this, we’ve add a new feature to the Affiliate Center.  That is, if you’ve not already recorded your Time Zone for your account, you’ll now see a new mechanism under the official date and time (top left corner of the Affiliate Center) to enter it.  Once entered and saved, it will be hidden so as not to clutter up the page, but you can click the clock icon in front of the official date and time if you ever need to change your Time Zone.

We have a number of uses planned for both at the Affiliate Center and TripleClicks.  One of the first you’ll notice is on Affiliate Snapshots.  If your affiliate has submitted their Time Zone, their local time will now be displayed directly behind their country (the line immediately following their name).  We’ll also be using your selected Time Zone for various schedules so schedules display in YOUR time, not ours.
