Would you pay $10/month for a badge with no functionality other than being cool?

Depends how cool it is

If you would probably do it, pick Yes. If you're unsure but you would probably be tempted, maybe the middle option. If it sounds stupid, pick No.

The only cool badge would be a counter that shows total $ donated to charities by the person through this platform.

A non-functional badge would quickly become uncool.

@ClubmasterTransparent maybe if it was branded as the user being a donor/funder of the platform rather than Xitter style fake verification or Reddit style pointless rewards zoo then it might seem cooler

@TheAllMemeingEye now that I think about it, badges for Manifold charity donations might be a pretty cool social incentive too

The real question is whether people would pay to not have to display a particularly uncool badge next to their names 🤔

Are manifolders more rational? Because this poll would have much more yes in the general population as observed by natural experiments

@RanaG I'm convinced there are more Yes voters out there but I'm not surprised at the ratio so far.

@Eliza (Maybe some people want a little bit more than a badge)

@RanaG Which natural experiments do you have in mind?

@TimothyJohnson5c16 video games, NFTs, collectors of physical stuff

I heard from some users who think badges are cool and maybe YOU would also be interested in a pay-for-cosmetic program? Maybe share your ideas in here if you have some.
