    Badges, we don't need no stinking badges!

    Seriously, personally, I would not stop a project in order to gain a badge. Maybe it's just me but, I'll get 'em when I get 'em and be damn proud of 'em. However, I run what I got, except when we did the CEP2 challenge. Because that was worth stopping the others.

    You can do as you will, as will I. Just my two cents, while sitting at the coffee shop with nothing better to do! :D

    I recently did that, and I wish I had done it sooner. When that last challenge was ending and people mentioned MCM, I stopped FA@H because I preferred MCM over it.

    My issue has been that I've been lax about keeping up with the different projects, and I should have branched out long ago. Now that I'm more aware and looking into the different things, I should have a better balance evening out.

    I respect that, and while the goal isn't merely attaining badges, it does offer somewhat of a tangible item that marks progress on different projects. However, like you said, it's more important to run what you run mainly because it's what you want to contribute toward.

    Either way, it's all good and work gets done for the good of all. :)
