>> *Creating a Badge.*
>> If feedback is a conversation, then creating a Badge sparks a whole
>> community around something you love. If you are a P2PU course facilitator,
>> an organizer of a conference, or if a certain subject matter floats your
>> boat, consider making a Badge for it:
>> [image: Badge4]<http://info.p2pu.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/Badge4.png>
>> From there, you'll have a chance to preview and publish your Badge. If
>> you just want to save it and come back later, the Badge will appear in your
>> profile under "Badges in the Garden Shed."
>> *FAQs.*
>> *How long will my Badge take to be published and ready for action?  *
>> Immediately. You'll get to preview it before you publish, and then you'll
>> get a confirmation that the Badge is live.
>> *I'm not in a P2PU course, but I have an event or a project I'd like to
>> create a Badge for. Can I? *
>> Yeah buddy--go for it. You can create a Badge for any kind of Project or
>> event. Just direct folks towards your Badge's particular URL so they can
>> apply for it.
>> *I'm an Expert and possess the Badge. How will I know when Projects are
>> submitted? *
>> We'll notify you with a snappy message in your Inbox.
>> *Do your Badges integrate with the Open Badges Infrastructure? *
>> They will by May 1, 2013. Stay tuned for updates.
>> *What's Coming Down the Pike.*
>> Here's a little window into the features we are furiously working on here
>> at P2PU. These items are on deck for our next sprint:
>>    - Integration of Badges into P2PU.org courses
>>    - Spiffy landing page gallery sort/search/filter
>>    - Ability to evaluate the usefulness of feedback
>>    - Badge creation gallery of shapes and colors
>>    - Open Badges Infrastructure **Integration
>> *Find Out More.*
>> In all seriousness, the skills we need evolve fast and furiously. At
>> P2PU, we believe learning is guided by passion, projects and people. We've
>> created a space to connect those arenas and help learners grow. So, Badges
>> represent learning online that you can feel good about. If you're curious
