I never thought I would ever see such a thing, but here it is:
The amount is amazing in itself. Perhaps that is due to a larger population on SO, I must admit I had never thought such a thing possible (at least, not in a day!). It probably has to deal with the hotness, but still.
I was wondering if a specific badge should be awarded to belarius for its amazing answer (I don't consider it amazing myself, though I upvoted it, but given the number of answers I guess it is).
Currently the "top" reward is the Gold Badge: Great Answer, for 100+ votes, shared with 1305 users. But there is a HUGE gap between 100 and 500 (or even 250).
Given the pattern 10, 25, 100, I was wondering if it was worth creating a "Platinum Badge" [Legendary Answer] for 250+/500+ votes (and, for symmetry, the same goes for questions).
Admittedly it would be a niche badge, but I feel that a person gathering so many votes for his answer should be rewarded.
