What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 131 Stack Exchange communities.

If no badge currently exists for this, then I suggest that when a user reaches the top x reputation, or the highest reputation, they get awarded a gold badge. Only one of these badges will exist at any time on a given site. If a user still has the top reputation after one year then they are given a diamond badge (only one time).

Kirsh: You are free to suggest anything you want. If people are downvoting you on Meta, chances are it is because people do not agree with your suggestion. That doesn't mean you were wrong to ask. –  TheTXI Jul 30 '09 at 14:27
    
@Pesto, sometimes, a period demands a wide berth. –  random Jul 30 '09 at 14:27

I don't see how this is useful. It has been demonstrated over all the websites so far that once someone grabs the lead, they generally are -not- going to give it up. For a while there was a bit of a back and forth between myself, Atwood, Olafur, and Skeeter for #1 on Meta, but Atwood has pulled away to the point where unless he took a few days off you can't catch him. The same is true for StackOverflow (Skeet would have to take several years off at this point) and I think a couple of users on SuperUser are already pulling away from the pack.

If there was a Rosetta Stone package for "Engrish" I need to go and invest in it. –  TheTXI Jul 30 '09 at 14:38

Yellow Jersey?

You mean Jon Skeet's 900+ badges aren't enough?

One can never have too many virtual items of little to no value –  Ian Elliott Jul 30 '09 at 14:19
    
That will be only one at time .. my request only one at time in SO or SM or SU –  joe Jul 30 '09 at 14:21
    
Well considering theres a daily rep limit on all sites and it's the same limit and SO predates any of the other sites by 6+ months, I think the Jon Skeet comment still applied. Or do you envisions someone on SU or SF overtaking his 80k+ rep on SO? –  cletus Jul 30 '09 at 14:23

@Kirsh: Tons of stuff is impossible. Like the halting problem. Or brainwashing TXI into thinking ponies are hideous. –  XMLbog Jul 30 '09 at 15:23
    
Not to mention cold fusion. –  random Jul 30 '09 at 15:31
    
They had cold fusion in that Spiderman movie so it's real. –  XMLbog Jul 30 '09 at 15:45
