In various projects so-called badges are awarded. They honor a cruncher for their participation in the research project.
Depending on the project, the degree of the insignia corresponds to the calculation time provided (in WCG: bronze, silver, gold, ruby, emerald, sapphire) or a certain minimum number of BOINC credits in a sub-project (in PrimeGrid: Bronze, silver, gold, amethyst).
These pictures are usually displayed on the account page, sometimes also next to the forum post.
