      These will be fantastic incentives to educators and their students in the future! The words are fantastic and with simple symbols to match, awesome!

        Glad you dig! Those binoculars look nice on you ;)

        • workingmom12922 years ago

          Thanks. Now all I need is a feather in my cap!

      So interesting that you define scribes as people who reply and elicit replies rather than people who comment. I like that decision because those two metrics are more indicative of conversation.

        Yup! That was exactly the idea. We didn’t want peeps to just be able to comment like lunatics and earn a badge.

        PS Make yourself a dang scribe already! :P And don’t lose those binocs!

          How do I not have a quill yet? I comment way more than I reply to comments. I need to engage more with the community. My comments are usually replies to the writer of the article, even if it's not someone I know. I usually want to express agreement, or disagreement, or interest, or relate what they're saying to something in my life. I need to move past that one-way dialogue.

      ‘Scouts’ & ‘scribes’ are such beautiful word choices! They’re so timeless and underused and they sounds great together. Great fucking work!
