I never thought I would ever see such a thing, but here it is:
This question has gathered nearly 200 votes in under 24 hours, and this answer has gathered more than 560 votes at the time of writing (in under 24 hours...)
The amount is amazing in itself. Perhaps that is due to a larger population on SO, I must admit I had never thought such a thing possible (at least, not in a day!). It probably has to deal with the hotness, but still.
I was wondering if a specific badge should be awarded to belarius for its amazing answer (I don't consider it amazing myself, though I upvoted it, but given the number of answers I guess it is).
Currently the "top" reward is the Gold Badge: Great Answer, for 100+ votes, shared with 1305 users. But there is a HUGE gap between 100 and 500 (or even 250).
Given the pattern 10, 25, 100, I was wondering if it was worth creating a "Platinum Badge" [Legendary Answer] for 250+/500+ votes (and, for symmetry, the same goes for questions).
Admittedly it would be a niche badge, but I feel that a person gathering so many votes for his answer should be rewarded.
