Thread: Elite Badge

  1. #46
    Anyone know who posted this: http://wouter.bbcmicro.net/pictures/...elite_pins.jpg on the interwebs (or knows how to track the person down) .... at some point in time, all three Elite pins were on the table in front of a camera, maybe the guy earned all three for himself, maybe he knew people ... there is at least one other person with an Elite badge (maybe 3) ... go find him (or them), he needs to know E : D is happening, and needs to know there is an uber-elite club (of people so crusty we probably cant play the game anymore) that he (they) are eligable to join ;-)

    To all the rest of you that claim you may have played Elite ... paaaah ... I gesticulate in your general direction ... you mother was a hampster, and your father smelt of elderberries.... show me the badge (or at least claim you had one once)

    (urm ... was that a little harsh ... I have been down the pub all night ... sorry)

    ;-)

    (probably was a little contentious, but I'm gonna click reply anyway and go down in flames if that what I deserve)

    with my badge ;-)

    p.s. sorry again, I blame it on the booze ... dont think I met your mother, and a certainly never smelt your father ;-)

    I did have a badge though. It was a square one. Gold border, black background with the 'Elite' logo on it.

    Can not find it.

    Keep looking. It took me 4 weeks to find mine. It was in a box of old photographs together with all my archery medals.

    So I think this thread turned up you, me and Duncan who have badges.

    @JFK - I love that your badge looks a bit scuffed, I can just imagine on an 80's style denim jacket beside your AC/DC badge!!

    Duncan

    @Duncan - Don't be lazy take a pic of your actual badge, they are all unique

    Me
    My Elite Badge

    So that is two BBC B badges and a Commodore 64 badge.

    Have we missed anyone else? Surely we can do better than three people who where awarded the official "Order of Elite" on the Official Elite Forums!!

    Anyone??
    Yes Me, a BBC B player

    I am also a "registered" Elite - (errm how do I post a pic of it?)

    Oh and check my name - sound familiar?

    Edit: I've just had a bit of a notion - what do you think the chances are of getting David B to agree to letting all the the confirmed (by badge) Elite pilots from the original have an elite logo ship decal reserved just for them? And can't be earned ingame - As you say we are only a select few and the peacock in me wants to show that off

    And maybe we should form a flight wing ingame too ok getting a bit carried away ..

    Think that idea might be going a bit too far. You'd have people 3D printing badges to join in. It's enough that we know who we are.

    In game group already agreed, get your badge up and join.

    I never knew about the non-BBC variants, I have to say they look rather nice (not that I would swap!)

    I made it to Élite on the BBC B (disc version), but never got a badge. Only got to Deadly on my favourite version (Acorn Archimedes).

    FFE was so bugged at release that I lost interest fast.

    Another Beeb Eliter here. I'm pretty sure I still have the badge somewhere and plan to search for it when I get the chance.

    I remember the letter as well but have long since lost contact with that one! (I recall it talking about a special 'Elite' (the elite of the Elite?) group that I had unfortunately not qualified for - wasn't there a competition of some sort for those that did qualify?). Sorry if somebody has said all this before.

    As an aside, when I got my badge I was a few years into my teaching career and used to pin it on my lapel. I knew there were some kids in my school who played the game.

    Resize it to 80 x 80 and make it your avatar.

    Then there will then be four, with a possible fifth.

    Nice if we can get to seven

    When you sent your code off you received an extra commendation if you were the best Elite that month.
