But you're saying, "Hey, spam these forums and threads and get a badge, do it now!", But I don't see spammers in the 500 forums posts or more badge... Of course, your definition of spam is probably "stuff that Futiles doesn't want to see".

I think 5 days is fair, Dan. that averages 3k per day...doable but gonna be HARD.

15k in a week without disrupting family life is virtually impossible for someone who works 40hrs as week. Also, until someone (or a few) people do 20 or 25k in a week, we don't need the badge (my opinion). Why put the cart before the horse. If you can do it, do it, and get them to assign the badge retroactively IF they add one. It'll be in the site stats.

Anyway, enough about that. If anyone want more badges, there's a thread for that, please use it instead of this one.

Edit: The only reason you have a 15k week badge to go for is I lobbied for it for a year, including begging Eric on his wall. Also, I asked for more stats in another thread. The site doesn't track best week ever, so it can't be awarded later.

For something like that, they should be able to. For me, it's not a question of can people do it, but is it a badge with the community in mind. Only 62 people have done the 10k in a week, and only 11 have done the 15k out of an approx. 4k members. Don't get me wrong, if they added it, I'd be one of the few doing it too, it just doesn't seem like we need another tier yet, since it really only serves a select few who can spare that amount of time, and so few have the 15k as it stands. It would also be nice if it was online/timestamps required before they added more.

In any case, not my call, no big deal either way. Smile

There is literally a full page (50 I believe) of badges that are more rare. My point is, I can point to 50 badges that are harder to get and more out of reach than these.

Of those "50 badges harder to get", how many are realistically "gettable"?

Almost 3k by lunch. Hotdogs are cooking now. Smile Was hoping to maybe get 6k today, but that might be a stretch, since I started a couple of hours later than planned. Just didn't feel like playing at 7am. Wink Picked an hour back up on the 2nd Monopoly game already, so you never know.

I have always had plans to bring it back in some way, I'm still working on other issues with it, but I may be able to fix this issue with some sound reasoning. So I you want your shot at that badge I would suggest you get your Kinect games in order and sign up.

As for the Paul Walker memorial badge....stay tuned.

So, the badge for playing in one of Zombie's challenges is going to be given out by someone other than Zombie in PJs? Interesting. I still think Buck gets done his 15K in a day.
