Memverse Badges

Time Posted on April 18, 2012 User Andy

We are excited to announce that the first three badges have been released so you can start working towards earning those. Remember, the badges are supposed to be rare and difficult to achieve. It is highly unlikely that anyone will be able to earn all, or even most of, the badges.

The first badge is the 'Sermon on the Mount' badge. As you can probably guess, this badge is awarded once you have memorized Matthew 5-7.

The second badge is the 'Consistency' badge which will be awarded to people who consistently complete their memorization sessions. To earn a gold badge you will need to complete 350 memorization sessions in a year. The silver badge will require 320 and the bronze badge 280.

The final badge is the 'Referrer' badge and is awarded to those people who have done a stellar job spreading the word about Memverse. You need to have 200, 100, and 50 active referrals to earn that badge.

The badges are awarded when you complete a memorization session or when you visit the 'My Progress' page. At the moment we have it set so that you won't ever lose a badge once you've earned it.

A huge thank you to Dakota Lynch for designing the badges. I think he did an absolutely brilliant job!

Finally, we would love to hear more ideas for badges. Our plan is to keep releasing new badges over time.

They're great! Will users have to wait till their first "account birthday" to receive a consistency badge, (that is, if one is due them), or till the end of this year?

Dakota did a great job!

The earliest you could get the bronze consistency badge would be ten months after you signed up if you never missed a day.

Yay!! So glad the badges are here!!!

I had a couple of ideas for badges yesterday when I read this blog. A Ten Commandments Badge could be good and not quite so difficult as the Sermon on the Mount. Also what if ya'll created badges for some of the group memorization projects? For instance an Elijah badge for those who complete the Elijah project and another badge for those who complete the New Testament One Year Challenge. Just a thought. :)

Thomas: If you go to your "My Verses" page, on the right column of Acts 20:1, it will say either Editable, Pending, or Verified. If it is editable, then you can click 'editable' to edit the verse manually. If it is pending it will be checked by an admin/user soon. If it is verified, you can click 'verified' and it will be flagged with an error for an admin/user to check out soon.

Hope this helps!

There should be a "Psalmist" Badge. You could get it after you have memorized so many chapters of Psalms.
There could also be a "Historian" Badge. You would get this one after you have memorized so many chapters from Genesis through Deuteronomy.

John project

The badge idea is great !

I think a progressive badge reward system would be encouraging as well.

as follows:

50

100

500

1000
etc.

Along with other achievement badges.

I have experienced that if you give people something to shoot for, a goal, then people try harder.

I think giving achievement badges at low levels would help encourage those just starting out in their memory work, to feel like there making progress.

The Newbie's that are just starting out, may take a look at the Veterans here that have thousands of verses memorized ( God Bless em) and think " Geese I'll never catch up or ever get a badge" I think encouragement in progressing is the name of the game here and helping others to do the same, and I think the badge system could really be a fun incentive.

Can we get a nice sound affect as well when we reach an achievement ? DING!

Anyway just my 2 cents. Thank you and God bless you!

2 Corinthians 5:17

I like all the badge Ideas :) especially John projects idea...nevery 100 verses or something?

Here's an idea... What if you have badges for the Bible Bee...if you memorize all the assigned verses...you get a badge...

Or...

Badges for Scripture memory projects... Like Romans, 1 Kings Project or 1 Peter F.E...

John- that's just what I was thinking I Am fairly new and it will take me a long time to get any of these badges. Maybe there could be a new member badge, that you would get after you complete you first memorization session?

Wretched Man

I agree with the basic Badge premise that these need to be rare and difficult to achieve, making them well-earned. They have more value the harder they are to achieve. It doesn't sustain their value well if they could be given out like token trophies for participation, etc.

Maybe there can be "Ribbons" for easier accomplishments, like just starting; first 100, then 500, 1,000, etc.; first chapter; an entire book (of the books containing 3 chapters or less).

Here are some Badge ideas that you might want to consider for the future (and I doubt I'll ever achieve any of these):

1) The Entire Book Badge -- BRONZE: For memorizing a book with 4 - 9 chapters in length; SILVER: For a book with 10 - 19 chapters; GOLD: For a book with 20 - 34 chapters. PLATINUM: For a book with 35 or more chapters.

2) The Genealogies Badge -- BRONZE: For those who successfully memorize the combination of the Genesis 5, Matthew 1:1-16 & Luke 3:23-38 passages that list some of the basic and more well-known genealogies. SILVER: For those who, in addition to the Bronze passages, also memorize Genesis chap. 10, chap. 11:10-32, chap. 25:12-17, chap. 35:23-26, and chap.36, as well as Exodus 6:14-25 and 1 Chronicles 1-2. GOLD: With all the above passages, add 1 Chronicles 3-8.

3) The Inheritance Badge -- BRONZE: For those who memorize the cities and borders of 7 of the 13 tribes of Israel (Joseph had a double inheritance with Ephraim & Manasseh), listed in Joshua chap. 13 - 21 (not including Judah or Levi). SILVER: The former 7 tribes, plus 3 more, which can include Levi & its allotted cities and borders. GOLD: The former 10 tribes, plus the final 3, including Judah.

4) The Atonement Badge -- BRONZE: For those who memorize from Christ's entrance into the Garden of Gethsemane to pray all the way through His death, burial & resurrection and to His ascension in the accounts given in Mark & Luke. SILVER: With Mark & Luke, adding Matthew's account; GOLD: With the first three gospel accounts, adding John's account.

5) The Levitical Badge -- BRONZE: For those memorizing all the laws and instructions related to offerings and sacrifices in Leviticus (i.e., sin offering, trespass offering, heave offering, peace offering, burnt offering, grain offering etc.); SILVER: All offerings & sacrifices, plus all the laws regarding diet/food, unclean animals, leprosy, and feast days; GOLD: Add the ceremonial laws listed in Leviticus 19 & 20.

These are just some suggestions, but they would be quite difficult to accomplish; they would also help along those who intend to learn all of Scripture in Its entirety. These could be some good incentives.??

I have been on Memverse since July,, but I have been slow in memorizing verses-only recently memorizing my 100th-so I think John project's idea for badges at certain numbers of verses would be a really good idea.

There should be trophies, badges, and ribbons (which Wretched man suggested). Badges take moderate work to obtain, ribbons are take some (but not too much work), and trophies which would be the ULTIMATE achievement, taking lots of work.
There could be a badge for memorizing one verse from every single book of the Bible.

I like 'levels of hardness'. Something to work super hard for and something to work for, but not quite so hard. I love the ribbon idea! I also think that the badges should maybe be a little bit smaller. I really like the badges for whole Books memorized idea. Why recognize verses and chapters memorized, but not whole Books of the Bible? Memorizing the Book itself is quite enough of a reward, but it always fun and encouraging to earn something new. :)
One more thing, along with the Sermon on the Mount badge, there should be badges for other passages of scripture. Someone mentioned the Ten Commandments. How about 1 Corinthians 13 also?

LOVE these ideas!! I am especially excited since I am planning on memorizing the entire Bible and therefore will get... well, all of the badges for memorization of passages. True, these badges are not necessary, but they sure are a great incentive! And also, with such a high bar for the "Referrer" badges, I'm sure many more people will be joining Memverse soon! And on that topic, will all of the referrals need to be active? Or could we just do it where you can count each referred person as a referral, whether they or active or not? I'll be thinking about some suggestions for new badges... This will be so cool!!

Okay, so I think I've got a few ideas...

1) A "Longest Chapter" Badge for memorizing Psalm 119.

2) A "Longest Book" Badge for memorizing all of the Psalms.

3) A "Longest Verse" Badge for memorizing Esther 8:9?? (May or may not be a good idea...)

4) An "Entire Bible" Badge for memorizing the entire Bible.

I'll be thinking of more suggestions... and maybe starting to memorize the Sermon on the Mount! :)

P.S. Thanks, Dakota, for designing the first few badges!

There should be a badge for memorizing Hebrews 11 - a "Hall of Faith" badge. There should also be a badge for memorizing the 100 popular verses on the popular verses page - a "Top 100 Verses" badge.

@ Andy- Could the memverse team work on making a "ribbon" system (which Wretched Man suggested), similar to the badges system, only easier? Also, are there any upcoming badges?

Great badges, Dakota! I had been slowly adding the Sermon on the Mount, but with the new Sermon on the Mount badge, I just added Matthew 6-7 and I am planning to start perfecting them right away!

There should be a badge for memorizing each book of the Bible. I've wished before that there was a way to put on the Home Dashboard when someone has memorized a book when I memorized 1 and 2 Peter. That might be a good way to do that.

EDIT: There should also be badges for getting exceptional scores with the Reference Recall/Accuracy Test. Maybe 90% for Bronze, 95% for Silver, 99 or 100% for Gold?

EDIT EDIT: One more thing: Could there be a column on the leaderboard for how many badges each user has?

@Emily Hamilton: I like the 1 Corinthians 13 badge idea :) Maybe a "Love Chapters" badge for memorizing 1 Corinthians 13, and maybe Galatians 5:15-26?

I'm liking all these ideas--but Super401, I think there's a kink in one of your suggestions. The proposed badge for memorizing the 100 most popular verses would of necessity be tentative (since the most popular verses are not always the same), and therefore would not be entirely practical. But it was a good idea on the whole...

Okay, a couple new suggestions:

1) A "Creation Story" badge for memorizing Genesis 1:1-2:4 or so.

2) A badge for each book of the Bible memorized.

Wow, these are great ideas for badges, guys. I really like Wretched Man's suggestions about things like whole books and genealogies. It would keep them pretty hard to attain (except for if you memorize 2 John or something like that:) and also encourage people to maybe memorize some lesser-known parts of Scripture, like the ceremonial laws. Personally, I like the idea of making the badges something really hard to get, but then also having "ribbons" for smaller goals along the way.

2) A badge for each half of Scripture memorized: "Old Testament Badge" and "New Testament Badge".

Alright, some new ideas for Memverse badges:

1) As Jackie Chase mentioned earlier, badges for memorizing certain amounts of verses--how about 1,000 verses for a bronze badge, 5,000 for a silver, and 10,000 for a gold?

2) For the ones who do not plan on memorizing huge portions of Scripture, we could just have "Chapter Ribbons"--a small one for memorizing a chapter with 15-29 verses, a medium one for a chapter with 30-59 verses, and a large one for a chapter with over 60 verses.

3) Small medals for easy feats--such as passing level 5, memorizing 100 verses, referring 5 people, raising accuracy to 40% or reference recall to 75%, etc.

4) Instead of badges, how about trophies for huge feats such as memorizing the Old or New Testaments, an ultimate trophy for memorizing the Bible, and maybe one for referring... 500 people??

So, I propose that we should have medals for easy, ribbons for a little hard, badges for quite hard, and trophies for really hard. Are these good ideas?

P.S. I am going crazy waiting for new badges!! Are they gonna be here soon?? :)

this is not good I was entering a verse psalm 9:4 and it did not have it in NASB so I had to type it in to enter it and when i pressed enter I accidentally hit the letter k and I did not know it Intel I looked at it and it is in the verse when you look it up and I do not know what to do

Congratulations, Hope, on memorizing the Sermon on the Mount. I have loved those 3 chapters for years.

I wrote a play called Sermon on the Mount where one student quoted all 3 chapters and other students acted out scenes illustrating many of the verses. Many of the scenes can serve as stand alone skits.

The whole play can be found on Youtube by searching for "Sermon on the Mount Upton Lake Christian School"

My favorite scene is a game show that asks an intense hypothetical question based on MATTHEW 6:21
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dfqdnOTPMNM

Some of the scenes can be hard to hear on youtube. If anyone wants the script for any of the scenes, I would be glad to email it to them. philjohn1558@yahoo.com

I had an idea that maybe to make the Sermon on the Mount Badge easier, we should have 3 levels of it like we have with the others. The levels could be s follows:\
Bronze= Memorize all of Matthew 5
Silver= Bronze plus memorize all of Matthew 6
Gold= Silver plus Memorize all of Matthew 7
Just an idea. Can't wait for more badges.

Alex - I thought I had heard somewhere before that when we memorize our 1,000th verse, we're able to delete our own blog comments. I've memorized over 1,000 verses, but I'm still not able to. It doesn't matter that much, but I would like to be able to delete some of my old comments that are outdated.

AstroLeah - LOL. You're right that it was that way, once upon a time. The idea was that people with that many verses could help moderate the blog comments. But now there is another outlet for all that talk we want to do (i.e. the forums), and so the blog comments don't need as much moderation. :)

If there were to be one new badge, I'd go with a memorizer badge. Bronze for 100 verse, silver for 500, and gold for 1,000. (Or bronze--500, silver--1,000, gold--2,000 for over-achievers!) Similar to what John project mentioned earlier.

Hey Andy,

I recently discovered MemVerse website. What a great tool! I was reading about badges and I had a great idea for a new badge. John 13 - 17 is Jesus spending his the last hours before his death with his closest friends. It is a beautiful time where Jesus is sharing His last thoughts and preparing them for the end...and the beginning. I have in the past attempted this work, but could not quite get it...many words to get perfect at once.

I would call the badge something like "A Final Goodbye...But Not!". Something clever like that, but i am not so clever. So someone may have a better name. What do you think?

YBIC,

I don't know if that is all of the last supper in John, it might be from John 13-John 18. If it is then it would be very hard to get gold.

Just a suggestion. It might be encouraging to organize the badges so there an easy one or two, and then get progressively more difficult. I love the idea of having a set # of verses memorized badges that gets progressively more difficult (10, 100, 1000, etc.), like the "miles walked" badges on fitbit. There might need to be more than three levels, though. That way everyone can get a boost of encouragement. Once you meet one milestone, somehow it gives you the momentum to work on the next one.

@Avo Hi! As you've probably discovered, they're aren't many people left to chat. They've all grown up and gotten jobs, most likely. If you'd like to chat, the best place to go is the Memverse Forums. Go to the top of the screen and slide your mouse over Blog and you will see that Forum is one of the choices below it. If you press on it, you'll find the forums. The verse problem is not actually a problem. The first time you do a verse, it comes back in 4 days. Once you do it again, it comes back in 9, and then 21 days. Once you do it for the 4th time, it is considered Memorized. Hopefully that helps! :) Happy memorizing!

It's the NIV, but they changed it because somebody asked for it to be NNV since it was the newer NIV version. They don't support that version version for the quizzes though. (:-(

Thanks for the help, but that is what a lot of people would probably say. Any other ideas on how to remember? Because that wouldn't likely help me! (;-D

I see that you have memorized many chapters and learning many chapters. Also, you have the "Sermon on the Mount" badge and your "Ref Recall" and "Accuracy" are 100%. Keep up the good work! (8-.

Oh, that's too bad. =/ I hope maybe they can update it to include the NNV.

Well, that's the only way I would be able to remember, so I'm out of ideas. xP

Thanks! :) I do love memorizing God's Word! :D

Nice job! =) Keep it up!

Well, maybe we could accomplish goals together. If so here are our first 3 goals:

#1---Find a better way to remember to do the quizzes

#2---Me getting "Sermon on the Mount"badge

#3---Us both getting a "Consistency" badge

Hope you like them!

Those sound like good ideas! =) I've been wanting to get the Consistency badge for a while, but some days I really just can't get on. I'll be working on it, though. The quizzes actually don't work for me (something to do with Internet restriction, I think....), but we could find a good way to help you remember to do them. And getting the Sermon on the Mount badge definitely takes a lot of work! It took me almost a year to get it, but if you push hard, it'll be worth it! :)

I know! So, how do you think we should start?

By the way, if you look under Bible Bee in Forums, and click on the topic I made, you'll find that I'll have a question for you. And, can you share that topic?

I think I have an idea. Go onto the Forums, look at the top, and you'll see what I mean.
