I think we should start a Donor badge for a person who awards bounty on 5 questions of others. Ideas?

  • I know bounty hunter is a long topic, but donor is of my own idea :) Isn't it worth it?

  • I love the idea of those badges, Donor doesn't match Bounty Hunter though, they need to kinda follow on? Like Greedo and Boba Fett, they're both Bounty Hunters from Star Wars :) Mar 21, 2013 at 9:48

    @mattytommo: Actually I'm requesting Donor as a follow on of Altruist

    Ahh, I thought you meant for people who collect bounties. Then yeah, I agree with that. Mar 21, 2013 at 9:51
  • @mattytommo: I really think that this badge is worthy to be a badge

    Doesn't this mean that some robo reviewers will start buying badges by offering random 50 rep bounties on old questions? Much easier than approving hundreds of bad edits.

  • @BoPersson: We can alter the credential as bounty awarded before the question got an answer and within 3 months from the original date

  • @Mojo No it isn't, I've flagged it. The duplicate in question is about ACHIEVING, not AWARDING Mar 21, 2013 at 12:47
  • @mattytommo: Please post me the link which has that similar question

Maybe I'm OCD, maybe I'm just picky, but I hate it when badges don't come in sets (bronze, silver, gold). I think that should be the case for all badges.

In this instance, what about Altruist (bronze), Donor (silver) and Charity (gold).

  • Nice combination mate :) hope some moderators sees this seriously

    @MoJo - Nothing to do with moderators. Only developers can do this.

  • @MoJo - No. Meta is also run by community.

Yes, I'd like to see a silver version of Altruist; "Donor" is a good name, though I'd have called it something like "Bountiful".

Personally, I'd make it a bit harder, though; I'd think it should be "Award at least 10 bounties (worth at least 1000 reputation) on other people's questions", but the original suggestion seems fine.

If there was to be a gold version as well, making the silver a little easier might make sense.
