I know that we agreed to keep badges, but there's this one thing that keeps popping up in my head:
Do badges tell who's the best editor?
I feel like people who work on the wiki daily strive to get badges. I notice that the badge everybody strives for is the Lucky Edit. People treat editing on this wiki to be a contest just to win badges. If we didn't have badges, editing wouldn't act like a contest.
Would you agree? Besides, like I said earlier, this wasn't made to have badges repealed.
I should agree with you. I feel myself as that kind of person. Now I think it would be better to just disable them (They're however a good way to get new users, so I can be wrong). Anyways, I'll edit here daily, will there be badges or not.
