Weird tag under my name

Okay, so I had the Kindle Forum Pro badge going for a while, then decided I wanted to be snarky more than I wanted the badge. I asked them to remove the badge. They said they would.

Suddenly, I have an Amazon Official badge under my name. They never asked me about this and I never told them I wanted it. I am most certainly NOT an Amazon official.

I'll email them and ask them to remove it in a minute. I'm just wondering if this has ever happened to anyone else?

I DON'T WANT THIS BADGE.

It makes me feel all weird and stuff. Like I should be getting paid for all the help I provide, but since I'm not getting paid, I don't want it.

And where the h-e-double hockey sticks did it come from? That's what I want to know. WHERE DID IT COME FROM!?!?!?

ETA: clicking on the Amazon Official badge to find out more information, I am told that it is a permanent badge. Fabulous.

Can't get any more snarky than that now can you? lol

In reply to an earlier post on May 16, 2012 7:09:50 PM PDT
Oh I'm sure I could.

Actually, I know I could. I'm just using full restraint at the moment. ;)

I mean them, not you. It's hilarious. lol

Wait, keep the badge and demand a paycheck to go along with it! ;-)

Ah, yeah. Fabulous response from them. Giving me this permanent badge and all. Oy.

Oooohhhh, I *LIKE* the way you think!

I WANT ONE!

Wait, what in the ... am I thinking, I DON'T WANT IT!

Here's your sign...errr...I mean badge! LOL

All I know is, being the only one here *without* a badge, I'm getting out now while I still can. Good luck to you!

In reply to an earlier post on May 16, 2012 7:16:01 PM PDT
That sounds like the safest way to go. Hope it works out for ya!

Any other perks showing up? Like the ability to delete a post?

In reply to an earlier post on May 16, 2012 7:16:44 PM PDT
Ah, and I hope the same for you!

In reply to an earlier post on May 16, 2012 7:17:23 PM PDT
I heard that only works in MoA. lol

In reply to an earlier post on May 16, 2012 7:18:04 PM PDT
Not that I can see, unfortunately. There are a few posts I'd love to delete. ;)

So you progress from Forum Pro to Amazon Official when you try to resign? Hmm...they let Blaiz quit. Maybe they have *plans* for you!

In reply to an earlier post on May 16, 2012 7:19:07 PM PDT
How about free books? That should be a perk definitely.

In reply to an earlier post on May 16, 2012 7:19:17 PM PDT
Hey there, Mr. Brooks! How goes it? Wanna badge?

In reply to an earlier post on May 16, 2012 7:19:31 PM PDT
If those *plans* include a paycheck, I might consider. Otherwise, I'll bombard them with emails until they remove the darn thing.

In reply to an earlier post on May 16, 2012 7:20:22 PM PDT
I would take free books. So long as they're 'real' books and not those fake indie books that are free to everyone.

Yes, that was sarcasm. We really need a sarcasm font 'round these parts.

I'd rather the ability to bestow badges. You'd be surprised how many people need "Dipshidiot" below their name.

In reply to an earlier post on May 16, 2012 7:22:59 PM PDT
I unsubscribed from those emails. I don't care if your "book" is free--my time isn't.

In reply to an earlier post on May 16, 2012 7:23:04 PM PDT
"Dipshidiot" really needs to be a badge.
