XenForo has a "trophy" system. You can use trophies to award users for doing cool things. But trophies are casual and boring. Everyone can get one :(
Badges... that's more like it! This is something your users can be proud of!
Create fancy-looking badges, group them into...
Need an incentive to increase forum activity?
Make your forum more fun for your users, let them show off how active/engaged they are.
The more fun your forum is, the more your users will want to keep coming back for more.
No one likes a boring forum.
Don't want to give out the awards...
