Are comments still tracked after you " Post 1,000 comments around the site"? If so can we add the count to our page somewhere, Maybe next to the post count in the overview?

How about we just add another badge to the series and make it post 1 million comments around the site! This is half meant as a joke and half meant in seriousness.

That works too. So you are able to see the counts beyond 1000 then.

I've seen the feeds of many of you; they're just full of empty comments that inflate your numbers. Looks like bot spam or something to an outsider. I don't see much value in adding tiers when it's unrealistic for anyone to reach those amounts without boosting.

If you want to see your comment total, check out View Feed under the Activity section in your profile. From there, you can select Profile Comments among other options in the dropdown. (You're sitting at 1,265 Marv)

Adding nothing constructive to a thread near you

What exactly is the point of this thread?

Yes we have all done it and I can say that I am actively doing it, but I have kept my group very limited in nature. I don't consider it's spam as it only effects those people in my "boosting" group. To tell you the truth though its a competitive site for badges and if I am being honest, then honestly I would have loved to seen these strictly limited to a much lesser realistic number.

You can get those badges without spamming. There is no rush to get them ASAP. Over time you will get them.
To be clear, I don't personally mind people trying for existing badges. However, I see no way to justify adding more that have unreasonable totals.

But, even if only one person abuses the system, and spams peoples' feeds, and the forums, and threads, and whatever else, then, the badges are not worth having. So far, the badges have not done anything to "drum up community activity" but rather, have led to a banning, Eric activating the option to block people from posting to your feed unless they are your friend, multiple threads suggesting "limiting the number of posts/new threads/comments per day by a user." So, they are bad badges.

The forum ones are little more touchy since extraneous posting affects more people. Some badges that encourage site participation in moderation is a good thing.

That one guy from Europe abused it and then he put the pause in, which I hate.
