Badge weighting:

Badge types are currently weighted equally even though the not all require the same amount or work.

Suggestion:

Indicate appropriate weighting for each type of badge. For example a #milestonesubmission or #DRI badge would be given more weight than a #community or #acknowledgement badge. First the definition and outline of who can give which badges needs to be decided upon.

We also need to discuss and come to a consensus of what the ultimate purpose of the badging system is. Could it be for a "voting chit" to be able to vote on moving forward various aspects of the site or for being allocated a percentage of stocks in the future organisation? Things like that would be game changers, I think.
