Besides, the thresholds are far to low. I'm not that interesting and with these numbers I would have been a Celebrity (I'm not even popular). –  Toon Krijthe Mar 17 '11 at 14:36
    
In this case we need a Platine badge for Jon Skeet. –  Benoit Mar 17 '11 at 15:49

I can imagine all badge hunters to change their avatar image to something obnoxious or a half-nude woman just to increase profile-clicks. In short: I find it a bad idea.

Badges are meant to encourage positive behavior. While getting people to view your profile is not negative it is not really positive either. Sometimes, users who create poor content get a lot of profile views, and we don't want to grant them badges because of that. I recommend against these badges.
