If you take a look at the list of badges, several of the more challenging ones need an awful lot of votes/views/whatever. I guess that the values were set for SO, but wonder if they are likely to be appropriate here. On the one hand the badges need to mean something, but on the other they should be attainable. In particular, I notice:
- 'Popular question' needs 1000 views.
- 'Notable question' needs 2500 views.
- 'Famous question' needs 10 000 views.
- 'Stellar question' favourited by 100 people.
I wonder if the likely size of the community here will is in line with these values. For all I know it will, but I'm just wondering.
