Frequently asked questions about Badge List paid subscriptions.
What's the difference between a public group and a private group?
Private groups are charged a monthly fee (which helps pay for all of the free public groups, naturally). Most content in private groups is essentially hidden from the public internet, though the specifics of this are controllable by the #group-admins
. Membership of private groups is closed, so you can only join if you are invited by the one of the admins.
How much do private groups cost?
Pricing information for private groups is available here: http://badgelist.com/pricing
Can I get a discount?
We offer heavily discounted plans for K12 educators. You can find more info here: http://badgelist.com/pricing-k12
If you are not a K12 educator and are still interested in making an alternate pricing arrangement, please contact us directly by emailing email@example.com
If my organization needs multiple private groups do I have to pay separately for each one? What are sub-groups?
Some Badge List plans include a feature called "sub-groups" which allow you to create a limited number of child groups underneath your organization's primary group. This allows you to have multiple categories of badges with different URLs and permissions without having to pay multiple times. Creation of these sub-groups currently requires our assistance, send an email firstname.lastname@example.org
to get instructions.
Badge List uses HTTP instead of HTTPS, is my credit card information secure?

). Your credit card details are never stored on Badge List's servers and your card details are never transmitted over HTTP. If you're curious how this works technically:
