Looks like I need a new collection. I got the Hacktoberfest badge. The confirmation email was in my spam folder.

Oh no! Which email ended up in spam? Was it just the account email verification, or the badge claim one as well? We're looking into it!

Account verification and then later the early bird. I got the hacktoberfest badge in my inbox once I clicked the link it said invalid token. Then said click to have a badge sent in email. I didn't see an email then.
When you made this post, I tried again and found the emails in spam. Once I found the verification link the HacktoberFest badge and early bird worked.

Yes! I don't know why, but I really love badges so Holopin is such a cool idea IMO. 🔥 And never heard of the Open Badges standard, that intrigues me. Need to read up on it too. 🙂

I know what you mean about badges!
And Open Badges is sort of a way to do blockchain without the blockchain. It's a "hardened" badge with some additional metadata about the issuer and what it's earned for. I suspect we'll see it used a lot more in the near future :)

Would be awesome if the pricing could be seen up front instead of filling out a form before had. I had an ista-nope moment when I clicked on pricing and saw a form.
Will check back in a couple of months if I remember, hopefully I do.
Very cool concept ! Keep it up !

How can I claim holopin badges for participation at the hacktoberfest 2022, but after the fact? I just noticed that I didn't opt-in for the badges stuff in my hacktoberfest profile back then.
