How would you like a pretty ribbon for your portfolio? Non-newbies welcome!

Get Involved. Get a Ribbon.

"The Newbie Research Center surveys received so far indicate that newbies prize Awardicons over all other gifts. I thought that it would be nice to spread some cheer and welcome new people to WDC with portfolio ribbons. *Smile*

This activity is open to both traditional (6 months or less) and non-raditional newbies (older account but only recently became active in the community). Any new person who does not have a portfolio awardicon is eligible.

There are currently two ways to receive a ribbon:

1. As a simple gift.

*Check5* If you are active on the site and would like a ribbon, you can post in the forum below that you would like to be considered.
*Check5* If someone else thinks that you deserve a portfolio awardicon, they may request one for you as well!
*Check5* If I stumble upon your portfolio and think that you are active and trying hard, I will award one as a gift. *Smile*

2. Earn it.

Portfolio ribbons indicate to everyone on WDC that you are an active and involved member of the community. Therefore, the requirements to receive a ribbon involve more than simply posting your writing in your portfolio. It wont take long to do all of these things if you put in some effort. *Smile*

         *Exclaimv* Feel free to take it anonymously. I wont know that it was you, but I'll trust you if you say you did it.
         *Exclaimv* The list of surveys is near the bottom of the page. *Wink*


Feel free to post in the forum below as you complete the steps listed above. Tell me that you finished a review or left two notebook posts or took a survey. I would be happy to keep a tally right here on the page of what you have accomplished so far. If you want to wait until the end, that is alright too!

This is meant to be an easy set of tasks, but if you are nervous or have questions about any part of the process, feel free to ask below or email me by pressing the little mail icon at the end of my name: Cinn . I would be more than happy to help!

For Non-Newbies

Have you seen a newbie around the site who is active and trying to be involved in the community? Feel free to nominate him or her for an awardicon.

If for some reason you do not have a portfolio awardicon yourself and would like one, you can donate! Any donation of 20k or more will receive a Merit Badge, but if you would rather have a portfolio ribbon, I'm happy to oblige! You can get your ribbon and help a newbie get one at the same time. *Smile*

Donations can be made to "Newbie Research Center Funds or through the forum
