Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

The elves from Eerie lake forge one badge to contain all, for ever until the Dark Tower falls.

After seeing this question, it was obvious some serious action should be taken rapidly. Therefore, the following proposal.

When any user reaches 210 badges of one kind (bronze most likely), their badge score (all their badges) is replaced by a Platinum badge. When anyone clicks on the Platinum badge, he/she sees the real count of Gold, Silver and Bronze badges. This is the KiloMan badge (or Jon Skeet Badge as per Donal's request).

When any user reaches 220 reputation points, he/she gets the MegaMan Platinum badge.

People can get more than one KiloMan or MegaMan badge, just like any other badge.

Edit: Instead of hiding the badges of top scorers, they could be rendered vertically instead of horizontally.

Why? Each individual badge means something. Consolidating them all into one mega-badge loses that meaning. – Cody Gray Aug 10 '11 at 4:31
Because: look at the bold section of the proposal. Nothing is lost. – GUI Junkie Aug 10 '11 at 8:25

Meh. Unless 210 MegaMan badges get you the Jon Skeet badge. That would be awesome.
