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!
