I have seen screenshots with emblems and bug reports like this suggest that emblems were there at some point but they no longer work and there does not seem to be a way to set them in the libunity api. Is this an intentional decision or a temporary situation until they work correctly? Emblems would be useful in particular for dropbox and ubuntu one. Anyone have any info?

According to the logs of this Unity Q+A session, emblems/badges were removed (likely a design decision), while counters and progress bars are still present.

What kind of "design decision" removes something so useful? Do you know of any way to restore them? – Chriskin May 8 '11 at 18:40
Yes I don't understand since from comments I have read it seams they were pretty much working, I would love them especially for syncing emblems on dropbox, or ubuntu one. – syntheticLife May 23 '11 at 7:19
Is this still true? Or have they added back support? Thanks – Noitidart Oct 20 '14 at 5:19
