> I would show the buttons for "go to next" and "get a badge" so that users see that it's something they can achieve. Would be good to indicate that they need to complete the tasks to unlock it. 

Hmmm…. I'm not sure having the buttons at the bottom without them having completed the tasks is appropriate, since they can't earn a badge without showing that they've completed the work? Also, it's my understanding that Jamie meant for SoW Challenges to be completed in order, so they should't be given the opportunity to advance without completing the current challenge.

Possible solution: Maybe we could have some kind of message encouraging them to complete all the tasks in that space and when they complete them all it gets replaced with the congratulations message and buttons?

> "You're not alone" makes me feel like I might be. What about "Learn with your peers", "Get help when you need it" … 

I could see that. Good point.

> It's still missing a way to draw people into the conversations, and become peer learners. There is no way to see what others are doing. We discussed this before - would like to hear what came of earlier ideas. 

We've added a "Discuss Challenge" button on the sidebar. http://alpha.p2pu.org/en/groups/webmaking-101-introduce-yourself/

I'd like to add some kind of jQuery functionality in future releases that doesn't make the user have to refresh the page, but instead just replaces the Tasks with a Discussion area. 

> The images of people are nice. What happens if I click on them? Where does it take me?

I'm assuming it takes you to their profile?

> We could have 4? 5? badges per challenge, perhaps. They will have types. Do we want to just show certain types? All? Show that it's a special type? Is the description of the challenge going to stay that small? Should we show some descriptions of the badges? Are "Peers who have offered their help" the adopters only? Mentors is just done via John right now, right?

I thought we were working on a badge page for each badge, like Foursquare, to display the badge information? https://foursquare.com/user/1330750/badge/4da5007743a1de92fac16171 

Also, how many badges are going to be associated with each Challenge? I'm sure we'll be able to include them all in the sidebar. 

> I'm guessing we can click "Awarded" and see all who've received the badge?

Yeah, we can do that and the number, as well.
