I think we should start a Donor badge for a person who awards bounty on 5 questions of others. Ideas?

No Boba Fett??? – mattytommo Mar 21 '13 at 9:45
I know bounty hunter is a long topic, but donor is of my own idea :) Isn't it worth it? – MoJo Mar 21 '13 at 9:47
I love the idea of those badges, Donor doesn't match Bounty Hunter though, they need to kinda follow on? Like Greedo and Boba Fett, they're both Bounty Hunters from Star Wars :) – mattytommo Mar 21 '13 at 9:48
@mattytommo: Actually I'm requesting Donor as a follow on of Altruist – MoJo Mar 21 '13 at 9:50
Ahh, I thought you meant for people who collect bounties. Then yeah, I agree with that. – mattytommo Mar 21 '13 at 9:51
@mattytommo: I really think that this badge is worthy to be a badge – MoJo Mar 21 '13 at 9:53
Doesn't this mean that some robo reviewers will start buying badges by offering random 50 rep bounties on old questions? Much easier than approving hundreds of bad edits. – Bo Persson Mar 21 '13 at 10:22
@BoPersson: We can alter the credential as bounty awarded before the question got an answer and within 3 months from the original date – MoJo Mar 21 '13 at 10:45
@mattytommo: Is this a duplicate? – MoJo Mar 21 '13 at 12:44
@Mojo No it isn't, I've flagged it. The duplicate in question is about ACHIEVING, not AWARDING – mattytommo Mar 21 '13 at 12:47
@mattytommo: Please post me the link which has that similar question – MoJo Mar 21 '13 at 12:53
@MoJo It was closed because it was said to be a duplicate of this but it isn't – mattytommo Mar 21 '13 at 12:53
@mattytommo: Thats for earning a bounty, This is about awarding it – MoJo Mar 21 '13 at 14:11
@Mojo Yeah I know, I agree with that. – mattytommo Mar 21 '13 at 14:12

Maybe I'm OCD, maybe I'm just picky, but I hate it when badges don't come in sets (bronze, silver, gold). I think that should be the case for all badges.

In this instance, what about Altruist (bronze), Donor (silver) and Charity (gold).

Nice combination mate :) hope some moderators sees this seriously – MoJo Mar 21 '13 at 9:54
@MoJo - Nothing to do with moderators. Only developers can do this. – hims056 Mar 21 '13 at 9:59
@hims056: Can't they even state a point more soundly than we do? – MoJo Mar 21 '13 at 10:00
@MoJo - No. Meta is also run by community. – hims056 Mar 21 '13 at 10:01

Yes, I'd like to see a silver version of Altruist; "Donor" is a good name, though I'd have called it something like "Bountiful".

Personally, I'd make it a bit harder, though; I'd think it should be "Award at least 10 bounties (worth at least 1000 reputation) on other people's questions", but the original suggestion seems fine.

If there was to be a gold version as well, making the silver a little easier might make sense.
