The item

"Fixed an issue with partner badges not showing up on comments and forum discussion threads that were posted by partners."

might still have issues.

My account for instance should have the "Partner" and "Accredited" flags, I think. But they are not visible.. ?

Thanks for the note Michel.

The issue we're dealing with now is how many badges to display on posts (which gets even more complicated when you factor in the mobile user).

The current logic is that we show 1 role badge +1 certified badge +1 accredited badge.

The priority of the role badge is determined in this order:

  • Admin
  • Tech Support
  • Trusted Advisor
  • Symantec Employee
  • Partner

We know this is a problem that needs to be solved so we're actively working on a solution.

My Partner badge is not showing up either, but maybe a 4th badge would be one too many......
