So I visit the site during the work week... I mean, it's a great stress relief to read other peoples coding problems and try to help them rather to work on your own coding bugs.
But during the weekend, I mostly spend it drinking, instead of on stack overflow (sorry guys).
I was wondering, if the consecutive days of the fanatic badge should include weekends... I consider myself a fanatic, but even a fanatic gets to take the weekend off, right?
I guess, I am suggesting that we take off the weekend requirement to be consecutive. Obviously, I won't include weekends in the count either. This would actually make it longer to achieve the fanatic badge, because weekends don't count.
For every 5 days you have a weekend.
100 / 5 = 20 weekday periods 20 * 2 (weekends) = 40 extra days
So they would have to wait 40 days longer, but not visit the site on weekends.
Furthermore, we don't have to remove the current system... we can have the both in place like this:
To receive the fanatic badge you could do either of these requirements:
- Visit the site for 100 days consecutively (currently what it is)
- Visit the site for 100 consecutive weekdays (holiday's and weekends don't count) (approximately 140 days wait in length)
