The VIP BadgeEdit
The VIP Badge was a rank in CubeBomb prior to the update in late 2010 removing them.The VIP badge was similar to all other rank badges, a curved box in the top right corner of your character box. The box was two-toned red, lighter on the top, with the letters "V.I.P." written on it in a straight, neat font.
In the left-most side of the box, there was a small, scrawly smiley-face. People took this to mean different things, as it could mean anything from "The Devs are smiling at you", to the fact that this badge was a primary stepping-stone to higher positions. Getting this badge gave no special powers, but gained respect from the community.
Getting this badge usually brought on a sense of fulfillment not unlike the other rank badges.
Possible uses of this badge;Edit

- Showing that they are being watched by the developers and may well gain a higher rank if excellent contributions, personality and behavior continue.
