Olga,

You made my day.

It's really easy to follow and helps much more then the "short cutted" version.

I wish I had 5 votes.

Too much badges. Keep it simple.

Recently we fixed badges synchronization between Global Masters and community. So you can see all your badges achieved in the My Account->Badges section. E.g. here are the @Daniel Kutac's badges.
