    so I was under the impression that the WCG badges were on the same point baseline as before being 100,000k and that it was changed that you had to contribute at least once in a 7 day period. If thats the case can someone tell me why mine hasnt shown up?

    solaris, your points 28 days seems to be too low? 22.4k is the current limit but there are some suggestions from chicken patty that i have yet to implement

    Once you do, his badge will show since the new requirements is what he stated in his post. He already has the 100k, he just needs to return a result which he already has. :toast:

    Yessir, that's the plan. I told w1z just to use the stars that were provided in the badge thread, they look simple and not corny or anything like that. Just right to me. :toast:

    What was the req for 3 or 4 again? I thought 2 stars was like 2k PPD?

    Surely w/ 10 threads you'd be at least 5 or 6k, no?

    Well from what I remember of the requirements, you should have no issues having 3 or maybe 4 stars, right?

    I'd say about 3. I'll look them up shortly. Gotta love multi monitor setups. Got PS3 going on left monitor, TPu in the middle, and the right one has all my temps and F@H WCG windows. :toast:

    badge + 1 star - 500
    badge + 2 stars - 2,000
    badge + 3 stars - 4,500
    badge + 4 stars - 8,000
    badge + 5 stars - 15,000 or greater

    It'll be nice to have different badges like the F@H ones. Thanks for getting it done CP and thanks to W1z for implementing it. :toast:

    That's just awesome!

    3 should be easy for you, 4 might be possible depending on what you have coming, IDK for sure :eek:
    That is indeed far higher than I thought....but 5 should still be doable :)

    It creates a challenge therefore you need to step it up in order to get the five stars. :toast:

    Definitely...but I'm afraid that it will reserve 5 stars to only 2 or 3 people here :ohwell:

    Well the rest know what they need to do :toast: Make it too easy and then it's no fun. Just my two cents.

    I totally agree that if it's too easy it's boring, but I was choosing, I'd probably make the 5th star a tad easier to get.

    But what we have currently is totally fine, and I can't wait for it :D

    this is true. 5 stars will only be availible to a few but it will be well deserved for sure much like how crazy folder is only availible too a few.

    I disagree with that last part. According to EOC, we have 14 members that qualify for the Crazy Folder badge.

    And I doubt we'd have more than 3 crunchers who got 5 stars. Myself being one of them, and I'm not there yet. Currently, the only one I think would qualify is Mindweaver
