What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 133 Stack Exchange communities.

I would love to see a Meta Badge that pegs you for having more rep on meta than on the main SO site.

Talks about talking about code much more than asking or answering questions about code.

Not sure what it would be called.

Ideas?

I was about to complain for exactly that reason. Time for 1300x 500pt bounty questions on SO ;) –  Jon Skeet Jun 29 '09 at 19:45
    
Gold badge of shame if it's your highest out of the entire trilogy. –  random Aug 2 '09 at 1:59
    
You can never beat a cat at a staring contest. But I'm going to try. –  Tyler Carter Aug 2 '09 at 2:15

If you stand with your back to the sun, you will always best the cat at the staring contest. –  random Aug 2 '09 at 2:21

Cruiser:

I hate the company cruiser. And every company has one - the person who doesn't really have a job outside of collecting stats on how winnable the Solitaire game on their desktop is. But so as to disguise this fact, they spend most of their time out of their office "working" with others.

How about you call it the "Gym Teacher" badge:

"Those who can, do. Those who can't do, teach. Those who can't teach, teach gym."

Made me laugh out loud. I like it. –  Paolo Bergantino Jun 29 '09 at 19:25

You could call it Manager or any variant like Technical Manager or Middle Manager - something that implies that you have done your time on implementation side of IT, but have since moved 'up' to manage, and now spend too much time talking about development but not actually developing.

Watercooler

For those who rep higher on meta and talk about the S[O|F|U] trilogy more than they actually spend repping up on the sites.

Constantly hitting refresh for meta questions is the equivalent of the constant refilling of the paper cup.
