This badge could be earned for hitting your rep cap 7 days in a row.

It doesn't have to be any specific days, just so long as for those 7 days you always hit your rep cap.

I quickly came up with Solid Week, but I'm sure something better could be thought of.

Interesting, but not sure how it would square with the existing rep cap badges: Mortarboard/Epic/Legendary ; also, I'm not sure that this actually promotes useful behavior - maybe it could help people get the silver badge by focusing the rep cap hits in smaller spurts, but I have no idea whether that would be good or bad. –  Piskvor Mar 6 '11 at 12:00
    
@Piskvor I think it should meet the guidelines to promote good behaviour; if you do hit your rep cap 7 days in a row, then surely you have done a solid contribution to the site. It would also be a good midway step between the silver and bronze badges (it has sure been ~6months or so between mine, and I still don't have the silver)! –  alex Mar 6 '11 at 12:09

The only value this has is as a way to give more badges to the already badge-rich, who will already be beyond needing prompting into good behavior. I don't want to have to spend my time answering noob C# or jQuery questions just to get some badge; the value I offer the site is from my expertise in other, less popular areas.

What about [Legendary] badge? Isn't that just a badge going to the (most certainly) badge rich? –  alex Apr 30 '11 at 3:52
    
@alex: It's not a badge that I'd have bothered inventing; it's not motivating good behavior to a great enough extent. –  Donal Fellows May 1 '11 at 10:05
