Ranks and their badgesEdit
|High As You Can Get||Silver (gold border)|
|Penpal||Green (blue border)|
|Sp-Sporter||- - -|
Becoming a Sp-Sporter is easy, you just sign up, but you can also become a Member. 'Up to Penpal' Members cannot earn badges past 'Penpal' but are higher up than Sp-Sporters. Full Members can earn badges all the way up to 'High As You Can Get'. Only two people are in possession of the gold Leader badge - the founders - they cannot be earned. A Special Achievement badge may soon be brought out for dedicated members who have done something particularly well.
Some badges come with special privileges. For instance Members (and above) have free subscription to the magazine and Penpals (and above) are assigned a REAL SPORE to write to so they can learn more about these fascinating creatures! HAYCGs (High As You Can Gets) are often given important responsibilities within the Spore Club.
