Oh this was the best P2PU update I have received possibly ever. I can't 
comment enough on the beautiful new interface of P2PU-fantastic font, love 
the simplicity and larger graphics... OK off topic. 

LOVE LOVE LOVE!! I just uploaded the badge for Badges 102 and now the only 
thing I am stuck on is how to actually connect it to the course. Perhaps 
there is something I am missing or it is still beta. I am also not sure how 
to edit the data/badge once it is created. Thanks!
