Hey all, in an effort to test some site speed improvements I have deactivated the badging system used for collecting brass and the marksman challenges. I'm considering options for how to do this in the future without causing drag on the site, or if it's even something you want to continue with. Let me know your thoughts.

My $0.02: I like the badges.

"Those who are in love with practice without knowledge are like the sailor who gets into a ship without rudder or compass and who never can be certain [where] he is going. Practice must always be founded on sound theory." -Leonardo da Vinci (#19 Of the Mistakes made By Those Who Practice Without Knowledge)

I did as well. I'm wondering if another option might be setting up a sub-website like community.everydaymarksman.co that houses the forum, leaving the main site for the blog and comments alone.

The main issue there is that the profiles won't be synced anymore.

@pete

Alright, I brought it back. There didn't seem to be an impact on site speed.
