Such kind of badges could be funny.

I'd like the moon on a stick. Ideally a nice hardwood stick. Perhaps teak, but I'm willing to be flexible. The stick probably shouldn't be too flexible that said, as it will after all be supporting the moon. –  middaparka Mar 8 '11 at 19:57
    
It's a pity that you disagree. You have really good opportunity to look demonically soon with 666 o 13 on meta. –  alehro Mar 8 '11 at 20:12
    
why do I want to be demonic? I'd much rather be angelic. –  Mark Henderson Mar 8 '11 at 20:41

Badges are there to encourage growth and help nurture the community by rewarding active users for their efforts. As such, I'd imagine to some extent such throw-away "funny" badges would somewhat de-value the experience.

upvoting partly because I agree, but also because @middaparka only needs one more upvote to get rep 666... maybe in line for this badge then? ;) –  Spudley Mar 8 '11 at 20:18

Upvoting for 666 rep... Ding! i.imgur.com/qOu0j.png –  Adam Davis Mar 8 '11 at 20:21
    
I was going to upvote, too. But it's much better to have him stuck at 666. (Kinda like how Major Major Major Major couldn't be promoted or demoted.) –  dkarp Mar 8 '11 at 20:58
    
@Spudley @Pollyanna - you've both gone very, very, wrong. :-) –  middaparka Mar 8 '11 at 20:58
    
I'll do my best to avoid meta so as it keep this glorious reputation figure intact. :-) –  middaparka Mar 8 '11 at 21:00
    
@middaparka: @Spudley and @Pollyanna are very, very right... and you obviously agree ;-) –  Jürgen A. Erhard Mar 8 '11 at 21:31
    
@jae Just as long as nobody upvotes anything I do here on meta, it'll all be cool. :-) –  middaparka Mar 8 '11 at 21:33
    
Removed my upvote to get you back to 666. ;-D –  Adam Davis Mar 8 '11 at 21:47
    
@Pollyanna Oh well, at least you captured the moment. (I'll treasure that PNG forever.) :-) –  middaparka Mar 8 '11 at 21:58
    
@middaparka Ah well. There's nothing to do now, except push you up towards 0x666. –  Adam Davis Mar 8 '11 at 22:00

We're reserving that badge for the first person to reach 666,666,666 reputation.

Skeet is on his way. –  Stefano Borini Mar 8 '11 at 20:22
    
Will he then not rather be the Anti-Anti-Anti-Christ? Hmmm, of course! ;-) –  Jürgen A. Erhard Mar 8 '11 at 21:32
