-13

Given that the scores seem to be given in order's of 5's and 10's with the odd 2's, sitting on 666 seems likely rare. A badge for this would be interesting.

    Considering you start with either 1 or 101 reputation, 666 is not any more difficult than obtaining 665 would be. – Beofett Jan 7 '13 at 18:58

The point of badges is to reward behavior we want to encourage. Giving badges for getting a precise rep display for a bit doesn't really reward anything, it just gives people with 667 rep a reason to downvote a random post.

Just take a screenshot of your milestones.

  • You're right. I had forgotten that we started at 101. – Solemnity Jan 7 '13 at 23:12
  • ... and that you can force a -1 on your own score by downvoting an answer. – Mr Lister Jan 9 '13 at 14:24
  • I also did not know that you affect your own with downvotes(really?). I did venture too far with this question at my stage. Apologies. – Solemnity Jan 10 '13 at 6:48

    Now, I'm fairly new- but aren't down-votes for 'bad' questions, not questions that get negative answers? It's important to know what badges are for. My question, and its answers, emphasized that with context. Should I refer to these results in a follow-up question? Not one downvote to this point actually left a comment on why my question was 'bad'. – Solemnity Jan 12 '13 at 4:52

    Don't take it personally, on the meta sites upvotes and downvotes just indicate agreement or disagreement, not post quality. – Kevin Jan 12 '13 at 7:28
  • Acknowledged, and I see why there's differentiation. Painful, though. – Solemnity Jan 13 '13 at 6:51
  • Damn... I missed my chance to screen-grab my 66,666 rep :( To the Photoshop! – DVK-on-Ahch-To May 8 '13 at 15:37
