SkelIy received a cookie on Feb 07 for being very clever. And unlike in some places, when someone says something clever on BuzzFeed and we say, "Have a cookie," we actually mean it! Except we don't, because this is a virtual cookie and what the hell are you going to do with a virtual cookie?
SkelIy received a "Purple Heart" badge on Jan 18 because they suffered bravely in the comments section. Someone was wrong on the Internet, but they would not let that stand, no matter what the danger. They have served BuzzFeed valiantly.
SkelIy received a "Fact Checker" badge on Jan 14 because they verified or disputed a fact and backed up their claim with some kind of written or visual proof. If we didn't have someone to check the facts, none of the facts would get checked - and then where would we be?!
