HOW DO I SHOW APPRECIATION IF BADGES ARE NOT AVAILABLE?

I am  Evelyn Murray McKelvey, (Murray-2307)  I have been attempting to award a badge to Barry-1264 to show my appreciation for the help she has given me.  I sent my request through normal channels and was told that I can not give a badge because "Barry" already has all of the badges.  I wrote an email to both info@ wikitree.com and eowyn@wikitree.com.  I received a response suggesting that I contact G2G because "Barry" has all the badges.  This in itself speaks for "Barry's"  sincere personal involvement in this program which I feel deserves some Special Badge for all of her accomplishments. It is my hope that you will take this under consideration.  HOW DO I ACHIEVE THIS?

Sincerely,  Evelyn McKelvey  (Murray-2307)

Wow, Thank you Evelyn!! This made my day!!! However I need to say that there are so many others as well, who deserve another badge as they are on the front lines assisting and encouraging others to hang in there and to press forward in finding their ancestors, and others they have an interest in and building the best tree they can sharing their heritage and ancestry. 

Within the last few weeks I have seen posts of what they call "WikiTree Love" where members share their appreciation for WikiTree and the many members who make it a friendly place to be. 

Take this post: https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/312838/we-need-another-award-fair-minded-genealogist concerning our member Ronel Olivier just a couple of days ago. Last month a similar post to this one that Evelyn wrote was submitted as well: https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/298286/we-need-to-be-able-to-award-multiple-badge concerning our member Nan Lambert!!!!

So if nothing else maybe these recommendations will be looked at and more badges be created for our hard working achievers and helpers on WikiTree. I even wrote up a recommendation for more badges here on the G2G forum knowledging the hard work of others answering questions, and finding relatives and ancestors for our members. Check it out here: https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/209555/additional-badges-for-g2g2-contributors. 

So again thank you Evelyn; and I hope that one day you will receive a nice recommendation and get a badge too for your helping someone getting started and sharing what you learned to guide them along the way. 

Meanwhile, everyone keep sharing your "WikiTree Love" with others, encourage one another and lets make WikiTree the best genealogy site on the internet.
