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).

  • @BalusC I am pretty close to getting both of those as well, but they aren't exactly easy either. Commented Sep 17, 2010 at 5:58

    All silver badges are equal, but some are more equal than others.

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.
