New badges for helping to grow World Community Grid
9 Oct 2014   

To celebrate a decade of scientific discovery, we're launching new badges to recognize volunteers for recruiting friends and family to World Community Grid. Start earning your badges today!

As World Community Grid gears up to celebrate a decade of scientific discovery, we're excited to keep growing our community. Help us get there by inviting your friends to join World Community Grid today!

For the past few weeks, a small group of volunteers has helped us pilot new badges that are awarded for recruiting volunteers to World Community Grid. Thanks to their efforts, this initiative is now ready to roll out worldwide.

To recognize you for your efforts, we're launching 5 new badges for recruiting volunteers to World Community Grid. You only need to recruit 1 friend to earn your first badge:
      Bronze - earned for 1 member recruited
      Silver - earned for 5 members recruited
      Gold - earned for 10 members recruited
      Ruby - earned for 25 members recruited
      Emerald - earned for 50 members recruited
We hope that some enterprising members will force us to create a diamond-level badge as well!

To start earning badges, share your personal link with friends, family, and anyone else who you think will support the mission of World Community Grid.

Your personal link is available in the “Recruited Volunteers” section of your My Contributions page. You’ll be recognized for anyone who joins using that link and contributes computing power to World Community Grid.

As we prepare to start our 10th anniversary celebrations, it’s important to remember the “community” part of World Community Grid. On behalf of the entire World Community Grid team and members everywhere, we say thank you to the volunteers who helped us test, improve and finalize this exciting initiative!

Thank you!
The World Community Grid Team
