Should there be a new level of badges added above gold, ie
Platinum badges? My reasoning is that two questions on SO (the programmer cartoons and jokes questions) have greater than 100k views, and several others are well above the 10k view requirement for the "Famous Question" badge.
Maybe SO should implement platinum badges, say for 250k views, getting 1k favorites or upvotes, things that are extremely rare but will happen eventually. Since gold badges are so common now, I think it's fair to have some achievements that are extremely difficult to achieve. What are your thoughts?
Edit: Maybe the things like view-counts and stuff aren't the best example for achieving platinum badges. Maybe it would be best to reward extremely stellar contributions, but I just like the idea of having some super-rare achievements.
