Well, it's been asked before, but it's been 8 months and it hasn't got any easier.

Epic is by far the hardest silver badge. Only 103 of them have been awarded so far. The majority of gold badges have a higher count; except Copy Editor (80), Reversal (49) and duh - Legendary (30).*

Should the requirements be lowered?
(Disclosure of interest: I have 38 "exceeded" days).

* (Not counting the new badges Announcer, Booster and Publicist).

    What's next? Pundit too hard for silver? or Generalist too hard for silver? ? – BalusC Sep 17 '10 at 3:14
  • @BalusC I am pretty close to getting both of those as well, but they aren't exactly easy either. – NullUserException อ_อ Sep 17 '10 at 5:58
  • Is this an exact duplicate of "epic is hard, let's go shopping", then? – Piskvor left the building Sep 17 '10 at 8:48

    All silver badges are equal, but some are more equal than others. – Gnome Oct 21 '10 at 20:23

My official answer is 'meh'.

If Epic goes gold, then what would Legendary be?

The rank of the badges is purely arbitrary. I wouldn't worry about it.
