Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

The Revolution Badge currently requires 100 followers for a user's proposal.

But a sucessful site will move into the commitment phase with fewer than 100 followers. (Only 60 are required once the on-topic and off-topic questions have been defined.)

We surely don't intend to award a badge only for proposals that have such poorly defined "on-topic" and "off-topic" questions that they fail to move into commitment until after they have 100 followers.

It should be changed to require 100 total followers or committers, or possibly, 100 total followers, commiters, or beta users.

Presumably, given the higher level of accountability (real name, email), a commiter is more valuable than a follower, anyway. And a beta user is clearly more valuable.

We changed the Revolution badge to be awarded to creators of proposals with >=100 followers or >= committers.

As a result, the creators of three additional proposals just earned the Revolution badge. (i.e. Alright, Jaydles, you have your second Revolution now, so quit showing off!)

I never said the request wasn't self-serving... – Jaydles Sep 1 '10 at 19:12
