How about a Watch Dogs badge

I believe this is because there are "TWO" titles, the 360 and the X1 version. So, complete either...

But, based on that precedent, Tomb Raider needs the same badge.

I bet a poll of Achievement Fest participants will find that we have more Win Phone devices than Win 8 devices...

Adding nothing constructive to a thread near you

What exactly is the point of this thread?

Okay, we have several people with a 10k in one week badge, so why not a 15k in one week badge?

Y'all have me tempted to do 15K in that week, too. I don't have my kid in the days leading up to it. I might be able to crunch out some stuff, too...
You could definitely do it Futiles. Just need some planning.
"A face to put with the name" or "Not what I pictured" or "Exactly as I pictured" for uploading a picture of yourself.

I guess it would need to come with a new feature as well..the ability to add a personal pic to your profile. If you simply started a thread for the pics, they would need manually verified/badged.

Actually, now that I think about it, I guess they'd need manually verified anyway. One could simply upload a picture of a corncob to their profile instead an actual pic of themselves. Meh, I guess this suggestion is bad all around. I've done too much typing not to post it anyway though

Maybe don't make it be a picture of themselves, but even just uploading a photo to their collection for the badge.

How about annual award badges?

Several years ago I started a thing at Seasoned Gamers called the "SGers Choice Awards". Basically every year around Jan/Feb I had a boatload of categories, which I will list below, and I posted threads for nominations. I left those open for a week or so to allow folks to get their nominations in. Then I closed them and went through each thread tallying up the nominations. I'd take the nominees who received multiple nominations and they moved on to the final vote.

I then started a whole new batch of threads, one for each category, and used the poll feature to allow members to vote for one of the chosen nominees in each category. After a week or two of voting I closed the threads and started announcing winners....usually 2-3 categories per day. It's a long process and a lot of work but it's always been worth it. I've skipped one year since starting it back in 2007, simply because I was too busy to do it properly and wasn't willing to half-ass it.

Anyway, I think it'd be cool to do something like that here and award badges to any winners in the site/member-based categories. Here's some of the categories we ran with...

Best Media Creation
Best Meetup Media
Best Wrangled Media
Best User-Taken Photo
Best Thread
Best Movie
Best TV Show (From the current year of voting)

Best New Member

Friendliest Mod

Best Homepage Contributer

Not Good Life of the Party - This one started out as just Life of the Party and was later renamed in memory of a member we lost to cancer (SG Not Good). The winner of this one is usually the guy or gal who always makes the online rooms a lot of fun.

SG Goobacks Most Honorable - This one started out as just Most Honorable SGer and was later renamed in memory of a member, and close friend of mine, that we lost to a sudden heart attack (SG Goobacks). Most honorable is the guy you would NEVER catch doing shady things during leagues, tourneys, etc.

Next Level SGer of the Year - This one started out as just SGer of the Year and was later renamed in memory of a member we lost (NextLevel360). This is the highest honor we give out and members who do the most for the site, other members, etc are normally the vote getters.


IMO, these badges should be non-revokable/retire-able. Just because the calendar flips to 2015 doesn't mean you weren't GTN MOTY in 2014.

How about a Gaijin? or Geisha(might be a little too crass) badge for completing 5 Japanese games.
I know there's a badge for playing a game on each platform, but what platforms does that cover? I've got the badge, but have never played a PAL game to my knowledge. Would be nice to have a badge for playing and/or completing a game on EVERY platform;
X1
NSTC
NTSC-J
PAL
GFWL
Win8
WP

Also, some WP badges for games played and games completed would be nice. Wink
