Stay in the know and up-to-date on what's happening in the Blackbaud Community.

Badge Quest: Time Is Almost Up!

Over the past three months, we've tasked you with Badge Quest challenges. 

Like Mr. Miyagi in the 80's smash hit, "The Karate Kid," we've been training you!

A task like "write on a wall" seems like a small ask, but what we are doing is showing you how to communicate with other members!

Scouts are adding members to our humble Community.

Energizers are spreading positivity, Facilitators are helping others... you see? "Wax on, wax off" is really ... make Community AWESOME!

Let this ninja wisdom guide you:


Badge Quest 3: Raiders of the Lost Badges is coming to an end tomorrow (Friday, June 28th) at 5pm est. But, we never quit!

If you've earned a Ninja badge, continue to be a mentor and leader in this Community by answering questions, posting on walls, building connections, and scouting.

If you haven't earned a Ninja badge, you will always have the opportunity. Badge Quest One, Two, and Three will live on in perpetuity. 

The chance to win a $100 Amazon gift card will be ending tomorrow (Friday, June 28th) and I'll draw our last winner. But, you'll always have the opportunity to get that Ninja badge.

PSSSSSST: Without giving *TOO* much away, we will be having an exciting (bbcon) opportunity/contest (bbcon) for those who DO earn the Ninja badge. It MAY have something to do with bbcon 2018. Stay tuned!

At first I was all 'BADGES - WE DON"T NEED NO STINKIN' BADGES!" and now I'm "ALL! THE! BADGES!"
Thanks for all the fun!

Oooh!  I wonder what the (bbcon) news might be!  It's in Orlando this year, and that's super close to me, but I'm already attending the UC in July, so getting to BBCon might be a stretch, unless I were able to win a free pass (maybe).  :)

Thank you so much for organizing the quests!  It's been a lot of fun!

Late to the party... but I'll see how much I can get done in the next day or so!

Good Afternoon... We are NEW to eTapestry and currently taking the initial video training... We are also in the process of trying to get our data cleaned up and submitted for conversion... It will be a while before I will be able to wear even the very basic Ninja garb... The self learning materials are not all that intuitive as of yet... with lots of decision to make on how we setup and integrate this tool into our daily practices... (Once our data is converted and downloaded... Im looking for very up front setup help tools... and a sound user manual (I know old school)... But in short we are excited about the prospect of this tool

Gotta play catch up now! Thanks for all the effort put into this!
Scout can be a difficult badge since so few others in the office use Blackbaud outside of quick reference.

I'm quite excited to hear more about bbcon and ninjas! Two topics I greatly enjoy! :)

This has been so much fun (although CURSES to all the people I invited, none of whom decided to join the community)!

GREAT contest Crystal & Shannon (and those other Blackbaud Ninjas working behind the scenes). Been great to see the Community grow and I hope the momentum continues!
