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

Maybe we could have some alternative achievements?

I'd say, great idea with a minor adjustment. These achievments could be "poo achievements", which tear down your reputation and count as a negative bronze badge. Then I'm all pro. – Joris Meys Jan 18 '11 at 15:02

There are already achievements...we call them "badges", "reputation" and "respect". – Time Traveling Bobby Sep 30 '11 at 7:09
clearly I do not need to explain why this is declined – waffles Sep 30 '11 at 7:22

The achievements in your screenshot would encourage poor answers.

If your answer is the same as somebody else's, you should upvote their answer instead of writing your own. The same holds true if a few other people already wrote similar answers. Upvote one or all of them instead.

The JQuery/Javascript achievement is more in a grey area, but in general it seems to me to encourage writing answers that would be a poor fit to the questions.
