As I approach a voting milestone on ServerFault (unless I get hit by a bus, sometime in the next couple weeks I'll be the first person to vote 10,000 times), I'm wondering if a new badge would help encourage people to vote more.
How about a "Ballot Box Stuffer" or maybe "Diebold" (in honor of the voting machine company) for someone who votes a lot? If you use all 40 votes per day, that's ~1200 votes per month, but there needs to be some leeway for votes you "lose" when questions are migrated. So how about a silver or gold badge for someone who:
- voted at least 1000 times (or maybe even higher, 1100?) per month for 6 months, or
- voted at least 3300 times in a quarter (or 3500?), or
- voted 10,000 times (there are only 7 people on SO who've done this and as far as I can see, none on any other site)
I'm not sure about other sites, but on SF there aren't a lot of people who vote much (only 14 people have voted more than 40 times this week), so maybe a shiny new badge would encourage them a bit.
