SIMS Badges

Badges are manually assigned by SIMS Remote Coordinators or SIMS Portal Administrators to recognize special achievements and contributions made by members of the network. This page automatically calculates how common each badge is by dividing the number of badge assignments by the total active SIMS members.

There are regular badges that are always available for assignment, and badges that are only available for certain periods of time or under special circumstances. Scroll to the "Limited Edition" badges for more information.
