To earn your Plugged In badge you must be registered and logged in on the element14 Community. There are two tasks you must complete in order to earn the Plugged In badge:
1) Update your avatar & complete your profile you must do the following:
o To update your profile select “Edit Profile & Privacy” from the Welcome drop down menu in the upper right corner
2) Read the “Welcome New Members” blog post
How will I know I earned the badge?
Once you’ve completed the Plugged In mission, both of the blue lines will be filled in the mission description box (see below). In this example, the member still needs to complete updating their avatar and profile in order to earn the Plugged In badge.
