Blankos Junction incorporates a XP, Leveling, Badges and JUNC (Junction Token) system to add a bit of fun around the community and encourage overall user interaction around the site.
Members will gain XP, JUNC and Badges as they perform certain activities around the website. XP will also level users up and give other players an indication of how experienced they are in the community. Member levels and total XP can be seen under their name in the forum.
There are two Types of Badges: Blankos Junction Badges & the Blankos Badges themselves. Blankos Junction Badges are awarded based on certain activities. Blankos Badges can be exchanged via JUNC Tokens which are earned by interacting with the site. All Badges appear in the members profile.
If you have any feedback on the XP, Leveling, Badge & JUNC system or think something should be adjusted, please let us know in the comments section or via message/discord/forums and we’ll update the system until we find the right balance.

Note that at this time some Badges must be manually applied by the Admin. To request a Badge, please contact us via our Discord Server in the dedicated #the-junc-market channel and we’ll set that up for you.
Note: As this system has been retroactivity incorporated, some Badges may not appear on your profile if you have completed these tasks prior to April 18th 2021. We have gone through and applied some Badges manually for various members, however if you think we have missed something, please contact us.
Junction Tokens (JUNC)
You may have noticed Junction Tokens (JUNC) in your profile. This is a point system that is intended to reward our most dedicated members. At this time, you can exchange your JUNC Tokens for Blanko Badges and start up your own Blankos Badge collection on your profile.
In the distant future we hope to reward Blankos Junction members by also allowing them to exchange a large portion of JUNC for in-game items, exclusive content or other cool things, however that is subject to growth. Note that at this time, the Blankos Junction community is quite small and thus this is not yet possible.
Earning JUNC Tokens
JUNC Tokens can be earned in the following ways
- Daily Reward – Earn up to 3 JUNC per day, 1 per forum reply (up to 2) and 1 post comment.
- Earned from Blankos Junction Badges when certain tasks are completed (Refer to table above).
- 50 JUNC is awarded to members on their yearly anniversary of when they signed up.
- Earned from Blankos Junction Contests, Events or Giveaways
Exchanging JUNC Tokens
For now, Junction Tokens (JUNC) can only be exchanged for Blanko Specific Badges as shown in the Table below. At this time, these Badges must be manually applied to your account by the Blankos Junction admin. To request a Badge, please send us a message via our Discord in the dedicated #the-junc-market channel. Please ensure you meet the eligibility criteria as well as have the required JUNC tokens prior to requesting a Badge.
Viewing your XP and JUNC History
Your JUNC & XP history can be viewed in your profile via the ‘My Points History’ tab. This tab is not publicly shown and can only be seen by you. Note that the time and date shown is in GMT.
