Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

It would be very interesting to be able to earn a few badges more than once.
I would like to see a system for these badges where you can earn them as many times as you want, but each time it gets harder and harder.

For example:

Commentator : Leave 10 comments on posts.
Commentator x2: Leave 100 comments on posts.
Commentator x3: Leave 1000 comments on posts.

Strunk and White : Edit 100 posts.
Strunk and White x2: Edit 1000 posts.

This could be implemented for many of the badges.

This sounds pretty much like a amalgamation of several different requests. In some cases I am in favor of having certain badges have tiers for bronze/silver/gold with the difficulty growing of course (we already have this with a whole slew of other badges).

Well, in this case a bronze badge would stay bronze. The prestige would be seeing an x5 next to my Commentator badge. – jjnguy Jul 20 '09 at 16:42
(100,000 Comments!) – jjnguy Jul 20 '09 at 16:43
Is there prestige in a 100,000 comments badge? Or is it just the implicit admission of addiction? – Eric Jul 20 '09 at 17:04
Actually, if you leave that many comments, you're almost sure to get the pundit badge. – mmyers Jul 20 '09 at 17:09
You are likely to be an addict too... – jjnguy Jul 20 '09 at 17:43
