I think that we should have a badge for people who completed their commitments in Area51. Maybe a bronze badge for doing it once and then a silver badge or something for doing it, I don't know, how about 5 times or so? What are your thoughts?

Good idea. Maybe 1, 5, 10?

I'd say just make it a silver badge for following through three times, in keeping with the number of commitments that we can extend.

That requires about ~6 weeks of time on the part of the user, which is average for the time needed to earn most other silver badges (if not less). Even if active in 3 betas at once, the time consumed (in hours spent by the user) is still pretty much the same.

A gold badge perhaps for following through on 9 sites.

At the least, following through gets you four things:

  • A silver beta badge
  • One step closer to another silver badge (or possibly earn it)
  • Some more rep to put behind your commitments
  • One step closer to a gold badge (or possibly earn it)

How about: Gold Badge: Achieved follow through within the first day of the private beta.

Silver Badge: Achieved follow through within the first three days of the private beta.

Bronze Badge: Achieved follow through some time during the 60/90 days of the beta.

Small nitpick, Jeff has stated that it's not possible to follow through until the second day of private beta at the earliest. – Pops Jul 29 '10 at 15:25
not a bad idea but I don't want it to be a "fastest gun" sort of thing. It's a marathon, not a sprint. – Jeff Atwood Jul 29 '10 at 17:42
