Askbot userprofile and registration

I want to know if the askbot profile(badges, follow subscriptions) is part of another app or designed by askbot team and also the registration page with social auth, is it another app or self designed. Thanking you, George

For following users we use an app that we designed it's called django-followit. Badges were part of the original CNPROG software, but were substantially rewritten.

The badges currently are not separated into another app, maybe it would be worthwhile to do, but not 100% sure. Take a look yourself - the badges code is defined in askbot/models/

guess the main profile with images and details(country etc) also part of askbot and the social registration part of?

The social registration is also bundled. I've once tried to decouple it but failed. What you can do is replace authentication backend with your own and effectively turn off our user authentication system.

No your auth is fine....I like your profile too...One more thing. I have a forum also on the site..can I customize your karma and badges to award karma for posting in forum and awards for forum activities??
