Freshman and Sophomore "MyPage" Badges Explained


webkinz cheats
 
When Ganz added Badges to the MyPage feature in Webkinz World, there was some question as to what it took to earn the Freshman, Sophomore, Junior, and Senior Academy Badges.  Some members who have pets at the rank of "Freshman" haven't been awarded any Academy Badges and some other members who have the rank of "Freshman" have been awarded both Freshman and Sophomore Badges.  Thank you to WI member RedBear, we may finally have an understanding as to why.
 
RedBear has been sending several of her pets through the Academy on separate accounts, and she has discovered that the Freshman Badge is awarded when one pet on the account completes Level 1 of any class.  She has also found that the Sophomore Badge is awarded when one pet on the account completes Level 2 of any class.  The Sophomore Badge can be awarded even though the Academy Report Card still shows the pet as a Freshman.
 
We are still not clear on why the Badges and the Report Card ranks don't match up.

I got a badge today!

Re: Freshman and Sophomore "MyPage" Badges Explained

Thanks for the info,only Ganz could come up with such a confusing and convoluted way to award badges.This explains much thanks. Bob. need a penguin!

Re: Freshman and Sophomore "MyPage" Badges Explained

Still haven't earned sophomore and I'm on level 3 or 4. Hmmmmmmm...

Re: Freshman and Sophomore "MyPage" Badges Explained

I have Freshman, Sophmore, Junior and Senior badges. Anyone else have them all? I just assumed that everyone had them all. My pet has been through level five on everything, and is in level 7 for style and creativity. I have had all the badges since the badges where awarded. Thanks

Re: Freshman and Sophomore "MyPage" Badges Explained

we have two seniors and have not gotten the senior badge yet. your senior badge was probably from their glitchy programming. she later realized there her pet is actually senior so my comment is irrelevant

you have to complete the level to get the badge.

Re: Freshman and Sophomore "MyPage" Badges Explained

I am on level six in two classes and level five in another at the academy. So far I have only received the freshman and sophmore badges. Go figure!

it kinda does make sense. you get your pins when you complete a certain point in the game.

so for Freshman, you need at least one pin that is level "one".

for Sophomore, you need at least one pin that is level "three"

don't know about junior or senior yet. the only thing that i can tell you about senior is that your pin has to be higher than level "eight".

i'll upload pics in a bit.

==============================================================
NEW POST, WILL AUTOMERGE WITH ABOVE.

FOR SENIOR BADGE:

the class that is important is STRENGTH. Lynn is working on LEVEL 9 and her pin is "Level 8". I'm betting that she'll get the senior badge when she is working on LEVEL 10 and her pin is "Level 9". Will know in about a month. (I never fail the class but I dont take it every day.)

FOR JUNIOR BADGE:
i dont know! (yet)


FOR SOPHOMORE BADGE:

FIA already posted when the badge was awarded. I didnt know she was going to post it, though, so I didnt send her the pins. Here's Safari's report card with her pins. The important class is COOKING or GROOMING. Her current level is 3 and she earned the Level 3 pin today. In class, she is working on getting the Level 4 pin for those two classes.

FOR FRESHMAN BADGE:


You get the LEVEL 1 pin when you complete your first level of classes and you'll be the FRESHMAN BADGE at the same time. Boston earned the LEVEL 1 pin for the same account that Safari earned the level 3 pin bc I took him to school first on that day. The class that is important is STYLE as that is the one that earned the pin when I snapped the image.

Re: Freshman and Sophomore "MyPage" Badges Explained

Unless it is a glitch, I had senior badge while I was in level five (or four, when did the badges come out, hmmm) for most things, and finishing level six for creativity and style. I posted pics just above this....I just started level 7 for creativity and style.

I will look up when the badges came out and figure out if I was in level four or level five for the other items. Be back later

Okay, badges appreared on or about 02-08-09. This was my status with Slicky about that time which is when I received badges all the way through Senior.

We just entered the pro category today, and yes this was her first pro competition (probably her 60th overall cooking comp), so I am amazed. She is a few days away from finishing level four in every other class too, and is in level five already in cooking....so maybe she received points for being well rounded . All those actions are going to be pretty cool too, a few more days to them all!!

Re: Freshman and Sophomore "MyPage" Badges Explained

Thanks so much for trying to clarify this..our first pets have all of the badges,,since the recess came out, we are sending some new pets on other accounts to school...the levels and badges seem to match up better now..thanks so much for all of your hard work!! (As with much of Ganz's projects, the first are the test subjects..and we just have to endure the quirks)..But, on a happy note, so glad that they are making going to the KA a bit more rewarding!!

Graduate student badge??

My Webbie is at Graduate student level. 3 level 10's and 2 level 9's for this Webkinz at the present.

Anyone know if there is a badge for that?

Re: Freshman and Sophomore "MyPage" Badges Explained

That's really strange. I've completed level five in two different classes(with the same pet) And I've never been awarded the freshmen badge, and I got the sophomore badge when I was half way through level four. I don't understand this at all.

Re: Freshman and Sophomore "MyPage" Badges Explained

How do you become a Junior at the academy? I have the badges up to Senior, but i'm only on sophomore.
(I think this has to do with this topic)

Re: Freshman and Sophomore "MyPage" Badges Explained
