I think it would be neat to earn a badge for having
X number of profile views. You could have different levels, for example:
Bronze - [Renown] - 300 views Silver - [Celebrity] - 1000 views Gold - [Eminence] - 3000 views
I know this really doesn't necessarily "encourage positive behavior" directly, but it is a good indicator that people are either eager to read your other questions/answers (which is likely because you've provided a thoughtful response). It could of course also be that you've offended someone for some reason. Either way, it shows you are participating in the community.
What do you think? If you agree, would you suggest any changes on the name/count/type of badges that would be awarded?
I'm still interested in whether this will become a badge or not...
General consensus (thus far):
- Number of views should be increased
- Remove gold badge altogether (I didn't like the name celebrity anyway...)
Bronze - [Renown] - 1000 views Silver - [Eminence] - 3000 views
Another general problem seems to be "how does this encourage positive behavior", which I have already outlined above. It's more of a metric that shows your participation in the community through a "wow" factor (again, this could be seen as negative). Why is it even in the profile in the first place if it's a negative thing?
Any other thoughts?
