New badges for the increased flag-weight.

Now that the flag weight has been adjusted so that it can go all the way up to 750, would it make sense to have a gold badge to encourage people to reach this level?

Let's see someone get there first, then perhaps.

Warning: the flag weight scale beyond 500 is not, shall we say.. linear?

  • I see - is it ever possible to actually get there (i.e. does it tend towards 750) or is it just far harder?

  • @berry: No, you can't get there. For a flag you always only get at most 1/20th of what is still missing till 750.

  • @Jeff - On Super User, atleast one person is almost there Commented Mar 11, 2011 at 13:45
  • @sathya that might have been due to a bug / exploit in the way the flag was calculated up until about 8 hours ago. Commented Mar 11, 2011 at 13:47
