Will there be new badges introduced over time? and retire some badges? What is the procedure to do so? Is there a public voting system to introduce/retire badges?


New badges appear from time-to-time, and some actually change their definition, but not very frequently. See, for example, the list of Recent feature changes to Stack Exchange:

...to name a few. These are not introduced by voting, but with site changes.

    @Pëkka: Over on TeX.SE... however, we don't have the Close Reviewer problem over there. – Werner Dec 31 '13 at 3:32
  • I see! Yeah, that could be difficult to get on SO proper. – Pekka Dec 31 '13 at 3:32
  • @Pëkka It's not that diffucult. You just have to spend a bit of time waiting for posts to show up in each queue... – Szymon Dec 31 '13 at 3:57
