That's right Jonathan & Doug, using classical gamification systematics is perhaps not a good idea in our case. The best thing to create a feeling of recognition from our (we) contributors is some professional titles.

> The badges concept is for recognition of your work as Scott has said. They are also aimed at helping other people know where your expertise lies or show what you have done for the community. Like for example on job applications and social profiles. If people try to show these badges off on an application or their linkedin profile then it could seem like more of a joke to people looking at it rather than an accomplishment of some kind. For the badges system I'd like to see non-funny titles, no matter how much we may enjoy them amongst ourselves.
