It's just catching you up on stuff that was done during the transition to the new platform.
Makes sense, but just makes the "badges" seem kind of senseless. I guess it's the thought that counts 🙂
They are senseless. For whatever reason, TPTB at Adobe thought that "gamifying" the user-to-user support forums would make people more likely to participate. I don't think the people making the decision bothered asking any of the people running or using the forums. There's been a lot of griping about the lacks in the Lithium platform.
Love it. Thanks for the comic relief!
