  • Fact Checker

    Fact Checker

    Fact Checker

    Whitney Jefferson received a "Fact Checker" badge on May 25 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?!

    Collection

    Whitney Jefferson received a "Collection" badge on May 01 because they posted something that people are adding to. That's harder than it sounds - usually people are just like, "meh," (which, and I get that we're now waaaaaaay off topic, is a really annoying thing to say under almost any circumstances).

  • Cookie

    Cookie

    Whitney Jefferson received a cookie on Mar 05 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?
