Kurt,

What are the badges all about?

Mark

Typically forums use a badge function as a social ranking system.  Points are awarded for posts, likes, posted pictures, essentially participation.   Points are accumulated towards receiving badges/ranks.   At some forums the user gains extra perks such as increased photo rights, longer edit times for posts, adding a signature below your post, additional emoticons, GIF use age, etc. as rankings increase.   

Just a way known to increase participation.  It also feeds off a segment of the members as a way to show how "established" and "knowledgeable" they are as they will work towards reaching titles as for some it validates some need or goal they want to reach. 

At one time new members on forums would also see this as a seasoned individual giving information and could likely find the information shared to be overall true.
