New & Improved Recognition Program

Hey Tripadvisor members!

Thanks to all the great feedback from members like you, we’ve revamped our badge program to make it even better. Soon, you’ll be able to earn new badges and reach new milestones when you write reviews and upload photos. Good news: All your current contributions will carry over.

You may see some changes in the next couple weeks, but we’ll post an update here when the new program is live. In the meantime, keep writing reviews and uploading photos—other travelers are counting on your awesome guidance.

Happy travels,

The Tripadvisor Community Team

5. Re: New & Improved Recognition Program

It's nice to have an update, DaveC, but please can I add my name to those who would like to opt out. It's not an improvement for anyone like myself who has no interest in badges, points or milestones.

Please can I opt out too?

More badges etc is not an improvement in my eyes either I’m afraid.

Thank you.

There's no real need to opt out. None of this will impact how you interact with Tripadvisor.

Like the current system, if you don't like it, just ignore it! :-)

Hi again Dave

We fully understand that we can just ignore it but as with the Follower / Follow feature many of us wish there was a way we could just not have it so we could demonstrate to TA and others that we are in no way interested in it as we do not need such an incentive of badges, points, etc to contribute to the site

I can think of a few people who are going to be absolutely beside themselves. Of all the things that have been suggested for improvement, this one would be pretty well at the bottom.
