What does haveing a badge mean?..

I keep getting messages saying I earned another badge, and I don't know what that is about.

I meant to ask: why does it matter what badge you have? What is the signficance of that status?

Some people have expressed the opinion that those with a large number of reviews may be more trustworthy than those with far less reviews

To mean in comes down to the quality of the reviews rather then the quantity

and

The person's willingness to also share their knowledge on the destinations forums

Remember way back when in school ... students earned "gold stars" for completing all their homework assignments (or whatever)?

Think along the same lines, LOL ;-)

But a lot of TA members like 'em!
