Hello all!  In an attempt to encourage more donations towards Linux Lite, I have made a few new forum badges.  They are nothing super special, pretty much just the default forum badge with donor, gold, or platinum added to them.  The donor badge is for anyone who has donated any money to Linux Lite before and the gold badge can be for anyone in the gold donors list or anyone who has heavily contributed on the forums and has a "Gold Level Poster" status.  Also, the platinum badge is for anyone who has a "Platinum Level Poster" status here on the forums.  Let me know what you all think!

Donor:  https://www.dropbox.com/s/926yne4slh1c64l/LLDonor.png?dl=0
Gold:  https://www.dropbox.com/s/aggmwscoqy561cc/LLGold.png?dl=0
Platinum:  https://www.dropbox.com/s/a8rgpao4iu4zaj7/LLPlat.png?dl=0

Excellent!  However, I noticed there is a white border around the one you are using which is strange because I uploaded the images with a transparent background to Dropbox.  When I navigate to Dropbox using my Dropbox app, the images have the transparent background still, but when I right click > save as from the links I posted it downloads the images without the transparency.

EDIT: It looks like if you click on the options button in the upper right corner of the page and then select "Download" it saves the version of the image with the transparent background.

This is great to see, thank you!  I am just hoping this encourages more contributions, if even just a little.

I hope it does, too.  But I can also see it in conflict with one's forum posting level.  There is a gold level for forum posters, too.  If I were brand new, perhaps I would notice the difference, especially since the badge would be just above the word "Donator."

I see what you mean, but I have no problem with people who haven't donated money but have a gold or platinum level forum post status using the badges.  The way I see it, if a person has a gold or platinum level forum posting status that means they have contributed a great deal to the Linux Lite community even if they haven't donated actual money.  This is why I specified above that the gold donor badge is for people who are gold donors and/or who have gold level posting status on the forums.  However, I will work on other badges or something that distinguishes between the two to try to make it less confusing.  Thank you for the suggestion!

My mistake.  I saw that you said Platinum was for platinum level forum posters.  I overlooked that you said the Gold badge was for gold donators and/or posters.

Lol perhaps I need to come out with Shaggy and Jerry badges.  Or just developer badges in general.  I'll see what I can do!
