User who doesnt want badges and kudos

We have users of the "old school" and they dont like the badges and ranking they get in  the Community. Is there any possbility at all to turn this function off for some of our users? Anyone know?

Thanks

We had a similar situation - with a very important member.

Eventually we set up a specific rank with the same title as an existing rank, and allocated it to that member - no progression, no ranking gamification.

Best thing I can suggest would be to set the No Gamification rank to be role-based,

With badges, you can then set a role to "view badges". 

Hopefully then if you have any other old-schoolers for whom gamification is a deal breaker, then you can just assign this role in the future.
