Should we create a bronze badge on the public beta sites for helping to promote good questions from the sites with the new facebook/twitter links? I'm thinking a little encouragement would go a long way, but I wouldn't want it to get abused (i.e. someone just shares a random question that isn't good to get the badge).
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
This has been completed with the introduction of the Announcer, Booster, and Publicist Badges.
You already get badge and reputation for referring people to commit for a website on Area51. Why would we need other badge for nearly the same exact thing ?
The reputation you get on Area51
The badge you get on Area51
In order for it not to be abused, we'd have to tie it to something else happening, beyond simply sharing with the buttons. Not sure what that is or could be.
For example, Student and Teacher both require 1 upvote on either a question or an answer respectively. We don't give the badges for simply posting a question or answer.
(yes, we do give a badge for filling out your profile page, and other one-off events like first upvote and first downvote.)
