There is a script for a cron job in askbot/cron, but the install instructions no longer mention settings up cron jobs. Are they still needed or helpful?

Yes the cron jobs are still relevant, basically they should run commands:

python send_email_alerts

There are other management commands that may be necessary to run from time to time, for example clean_session if the database session storage is used (as it is often - by default).

I think it will take me at least until Monday to fix badge awarding job, but it can be used nevertheless at a loss of some badges not being awarded till later.

was working on making response messages (the envelope icon) more persistent, it took me longer than I thought hopefully it works here now.

Any progress with this? I currently do not seem to have any badges awarded at all on my site which does not look nice.
