Badges: Who thought they were a good idea, and where do you go to earn some of them?


I’m just singing them cross-cultural translation transliiteration blues.

What little I know of any language written in Devanagari script is what I know of Nepali. I am barely bi-lingual in the Northern and Southern European sense; I am “restaurant-lingual” in a couple of other languages, and pretty much otherwise.

If I were to communicate with what I know in Nepali, it would be:

  • Hajur lai kasto chha? Tapai lai kasto chha? Timi lai kasto chha? Mero nam Edith ho.
  • Momo. Sel Roti. Dhido.
  • Dhanyabad. Swagatam.
  • Daju. Didii. Bahini (sounds like "bweeny’). Bhai.
  • Rani. Rajah. Rajkumar. Rajkumari.

That’s about it. My Nepali friends smile, call me Aunty-ji, and give me food. Their English is better than my Nepali because I have no urgent need to learn good Nepali or die.


LOL for me, Discobot is that friendly yet weird “guy”, who taught me this and that at Discussions. If you ask about the “your answer needs 10 digits”, “give others a chance to tell their opinion”, or “this post is already dormant for 10 months or so, are you sure you want to revive it?”
This one is not Discobot, but “you know who” - in K drama it is usually the guy who grows up with just one parent, who never has as good grades like f.e. Discobot had, or he didn’t get the girl he wanted. Discobot might have neither, but I am sure this other guy, let’s call him Discobrat for now, thinks this way, because she smiled at Discobot once at least … So Discobrat is just a weird case of jealousy, not able to interact nicely, or socialize with others the right way. Yeah, yeah, what to say, Discobrat is doomed for life.

P.S. If anyone is wondering about that weird post asking for phone numbers, it got deleted, guess by whom?



This happened, and its not the first time. Why is this happening?!! I have been dethroned from my coveted 2nd place, Jun 5th, awarded Originally!

Yes, this has definitely happened before:worried::pleading_face::frowning:


And if you deleted your first one and do another Wiki Edit, you will get the first badge again, since, it doesn’t keep a history it only counts active Wiki Edits. So there you are again, and like we said with losing the Regular status you will lose the ability to create a Wiki Edit.


But, I did not delete the first wiki. :pleading_face: In fact, I had about two or so wikis to begin with, and created others since June 5th. Only staff can delete, other than the original poster


You’re probably getting it mixed up with having the wiki badge disappearing altogether. The comment I made about the time travel bit was to do with how old the post is you turn into a wiki. I think at the time I observed KdramaAli had somehow edited 29 days (29d) prior despite having gained the wiki badge a day after Feyfayer who turned a post to a wiki on the same day. (1d)

EDIT: I noticed that the ability to un-wiki my very first wiki seems to have disappeared. So does that mean I’m a little safer from losing the Wiki badge? With the spanner now turned into a bin to delete the post altogether and thus losing the wiki badge? I 'm not willing to find out! :joy:


Guys! Look what I got! Am I the only one???

I just finished a 2pm ONline LIVE Concert Fan Meeting it was so good - and then I saw this!!! I’m so tired I have been up since 3:30 am - back to bed.


There on the picture it says “Others with this badge (1)” and when you click on it, you will get to see that it is irmar, who is the other badge owner.


How was the fan meet??!! Excited to hear your experience! You can reply in the Segue Cafe^^


Oh good I’m not the only one but it is COOL just popped up! I was up at 3:30 am to 7 am so I was too tried to click on that other button…hahahahaha!


Admired by who, exactly? And why?

OK . . . where am I supposed to go and what am I supposed to do to get an “Advanced” badge? I am such a newb.

The oldest maknae on Viki is about to throw a fit. It is SO not obvious to me . . .

:rofl::rofl::rofl: Actually by you, and I, and all fans, those of us in the Viki-verse who he :purple_heart: rted a post!
:heart_eyes: Those photos misswillowinlove were mint! :heart_eyes:


If you’re talking about the advanced user badge, you start a private message with the bot and then type this as the first message (without the space between the @ and the bot’s name, of course):

@ discobot start advanced user

The bot should take it from there.


Hmmmm . . . No wonder, too busy throwing fits!
Go to your messages, and summon @ discobot

First things first, start with number one, then do number two.

  1. @ discobot start new user
  1. @ discobot start advanced user


Thanks. I now have such a headache and a mental block about Viki’s fussy overlord that I keep forgetting the simplest things.

I’m not a Koreaboo; I’m a K-bot-screw-you.

@discobot start advanced user


You need to write a PM to - discobot

You can send whatever, and he will tell you how to go on, since it doesn’t look like you did the new user trial, I think you need to do this first.


Please try to hold it in, :face_with_hand_over_mouth::stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes::face_with_hand_over_mouth: you’ll be spending some, quantity, and quality time with the overlord himself. :face_with_hand_over_mouth::smile::laughing::joy::sob::rofl:


Ah, okay. Cloak and dagger stuff, eh? Secret meetings with code words. I will become . . .
