My interpretation of an old email from Pulsar is that any MP should be able to issue/alter badges. I'm awaiting clarification on that. Currently we're experiencing 'technical difficulties' if that is the case. I am hopeful it is because that will mean that Gmork, Mae or I can update folks status without having to bug Paul or Scott. Their lives seem to be a bit more chaotic at present than ours are at present.
I completely concur with you about a hierarchal tier system. I know Pulsar's already told me that members can only have one badge, so it's either that or let members choose which one they'd like to have displayed. The order seems fairly obvious to me, the only real question being where KISS fits in.
It might not be a bad idea to introduce a pusher badge, but I suspect that it would be fairly superfluous. Scott seems to be paying attention to who's active and using them as characters so they'll get the badges we already have rather quickly.
Thank you, George Hrab, for composing and performing the acoustic version of brainsbodyboth. Humorous yet poignant, and you gave me a theme song. I miss Ally <sigh>
