Here is what King has to say about badges.
“Earning Stars and Badges (and becoming a King Legend B )
Stars represent your rank in the Community. The more points you get, the more stars you collect, the higher you rank!
- How to get points?
Other Community members can react to your posts, with a "Insightful", a "Sweet" or a "Hehe" - The more of these your posts receive, the higher your points will be.
Additional points are also awarded if your posts are promoted by one of moderators or forum administrators. Promoted posts are listed in the “Best Of” section of the forums.
Another way is to answer questions posted by other members. If the person asking the question accepts your answer, you'll get points plus the sweet satisfaction to have helped someone 3
You also gain forum points by earning badges.
