Most are seen & updated with in a day or so. There are a couple you have to request vetifacation, like the meet another member. Or a post on IG. Look at the first post on this thread it is expanded pretty well. Good luck!

I understand that I believe I'm qualified for all the enthusiast badges and it's been some time since I maid the qualification I'm just curious what I would have to do so I can get my points

Start a chat with your regional ambassador would be a great start I would think! Please let me know what you find out?

The instagram portion should just be social media, as many people don't have or use instagram. Why pick just that social media type. It is like having a requirement to post a picture of a Toyota in a special place.
I will second that!

I no longer have any form of Social Media. I grew out of Facebook quite a number of years ago. as for Twitter I don't consider myself a celebrity stalker so haven't gotten myself an account

I guess I'll have to "physically" talk to people rather than create millions of frinds / followers without actually meeting any of them.

The issue now is that I'll NEVER be able to complete the badges. Yet again I'm penalised

Hey Everyone,

I've received quite a few questions about the point and rank system in the forums.

The most important thing to understand is that the rank system being built over time by design. We've actually put considerable time into thinking what is MOST relevant within the overland community, and how we might reward different level members. Here are some details.
  1. There are 4 trophy "tracks". They are:
    1. Overland Bound Ambassador - Community focused, and primarily forum activity.
    2. Overland Bound Adventurer - For those who travel a lot, and share their routes and experience.
    3. Overland Bound Innovator - For do-it-yourself-ers, and idea generators contributing new ideas to Overlanding.
    4. Overland Bound Challenger - Extreme Challenge Series
  2. Each track has 15 trophies.
  3. Trophies can be displayed on your profile once awarded.
  4. Trophies award "points".
  5. Completing every trophy in all tracks will award the maximum number of points, and the highest rank.
  6. Points increase your "Rank"
  7. Trophies have requirements. Some are forum-based (automatic) but some will need to be verified. For example, the Overland Bound Challenger Trail Blazer II trophy might require a verified water crossing.
The Ambassador Track is complete. There are 15 possible Trophies, for a total of 3,970 points. That would get you to Rank 6 of 10, but keep in mind, rank 10 is 15,000 points.

To display the badges in the forums, go to your profile and select the earned badge you would like to display!

Here are the Trophy Requirements:

Excellent and motivating graphics.
Let's see what I do at this time and how far I can go.
