Not to sound like a drag here, but since this site has been around for awhile, I think it should be left alone...or maybe, again not wanting to sound like a douche, has this site ever been offline for lack of participation or anything? Maybe it had a remodel and a relaunch, I know playfire did that, the point being, maybe there is a point in which Eric could find in the history of this site and recalculate the first (new) 100 posters?
I think that would take away from the senior posters here though and could cause some uncomfortablness, maybe upgrade their badges to a gold and the new ones would be like a silver era typ thing.
There is also the possibility to just go to the server information and or have a diligent person start going thru the site forum by forum and find the first chronologically 100 posters then correspond them with all members still on the site, and if the last 27 posters can't be confirmed (IE they closed their accounts) then maybe give that badge to the next 27 posters... Either way the badge should be retired and I should get a badge for coming up with these great ideas!!!
Good question. The First 100 badge was rewarded only to those that were among the first 100 members to signup and verify their email address. There were several users that did not verify their email address while others may have been banned or removed from the site. Our spam checker wasn't as sophisticated back then.
I need to go back and reward this badge to the first 100 members that verified their email address upon signup. That should round the number of users to 100.
