I would posit that they never should have been there in the first place.

I suppose an argument could be made that if someone like me were actually trying to collect badges, I would have an advantage over you because I have some that you can't obtain.
Really, it just depends how competitive you think they actually are. I doubt Eric intended anything beyond something fun to strive for on a personal level, but perhaps it can be seen as unfair if comparing to one another.

Badges displayed second, only after they fact that you can sync your XBL profile, ahead of the fact that you actually can have a profile. There are enough users here who care about badge, even if they aren't trying to be #1 on the leaderboard, that Eric can create badges to drive users to features. Some may stick, other might not, but this is free advertising.

Personally, I think he should be making more badges, adding a few each month to keep people engaged.

The only one of those that regularly gets me is "It's". I always want to make that the possessive of it. Fortunately I pause and think "it's is always a contraction, do I mean it is?" and don't usually post it wrong. I believe I read somewhere that definitely was one of the most screwed up words on your iPhone because it will not auto-correct to definitely. Something like that, I dunno.

Going forward they should be considered much like the X1 challenges that are time sensitive. Just another added incentive to log in to the site everyday. I liked the concept of those badges being time sensitive to only a year, it may hurt newcomers but there are still a lot of badges to earn although Kaens and Fsh are running away with them.

As the current badge leader, it's my responsibility to know these things.

loose - 1. not firmly or tightly fixed in place; detached or able to be detached
2. (of a garment) not fitting tightly or closely

lose - 1. be deprived of or cease to have or retain (something).
2. become unable to find (something or someone).

No, I obviously had them because I logged in. No one would have them unless they were earned at the time.
It's clear I'm not worried about my badge total, I just thought I'd bring it up.

Retired should just mean no one else can acquire them after a certain date, the same way polls are closed after x amount of days.
