Hey guys, has anyone seen the new "sheild" icons? I have seen that Catriona has a silver level shield, and Lori thebookpimp has a diamond one. But...what are they?

Well, I just figured it out - scroll down to the bottom and you'l see.

Do you think we'll have the shields forever? Cause they are kinda big and unweidly...

Actually, I think they might still be working out some of the bugs in the shields.  I'm only a bronze level but my shield says 'Diamond' right now.  So, I expect mine to get a bit smaller here soon.

edited cause it's "i before e"...shield not sheild

<<I have seen that Catriona has a silver level shield>>

I do?  Oh, look there, I do!

Color me stoopid, but scroll down to where?  This is the first I've heard of this. 

Never mind, I found it :-)

Cheers,

Catt

Down in the blue type at the bottome of the page. Lori explained it to me.

Yeah, me too. They are cool but VERY BIG.

I have the small badge, and I like the looks of that one better than the big one!  I love having my name on the spine of the book, tho!  I wonder how they will fit all of the names on the books........They may have to start a bookshelf just like us!

Mine also says diamond, but it's huge!  And I don't see one on Lori's name.

Looks as if they have been playing with the badges all day.   I like em and I'm sure they'll get them "just right" soon.

If I donate more will my badge keep getting bigger, even if I don't want it to?  The little guy is growing on me, but I don't want that big honkin' one!

Do the bookspines change names? Because I didn't see your (Tomboymom) name on there nor another person who said hers was on there too.

Thanks for the info! I got my badge!!!! And not sure if I'm the only nerdy one who took a screenshot and saved the picture of my "name" on the bookshelf. I mostly like it because it's my cat's name up there (Solo) but it just is a really neato feature I think!
