Hi, I am a newbie to Fedora. I have created my FAS account and mentioned my country as well as the latitude,longitude and time zone in my profile. The privacy flag is also unchecked. Yet, I am not able to get the Origin Badge which is given to a user when his/her location is pinned in FAS. For more details about the Origin Badge check here :

Is there any other way to pin my location in FAS ? Can someone please suggest a solution/what I am doing wrong ?

Try populating the country code field as well.

If you update the fields in your FAS account while signing up, you might not get the corresponding badges. That’s because you first create your user account, the system sends only the username field from the information you fill via fedmsg( Fedora Infrastructure Message Bus) and hence Badges is not able to recognize the information in all the other fields which you fill while signing up and correspondingly award you the required badge. As a workaround — I set country field to something else – saved it – and then set it back again and got the badge !(Suggested by @threebean)
