    Default Should badges be awarded? If so, how?

    Judging by this thread, the new rules for trusted reviewers don't seem to be very popular. I'm curious what people think the system should be, or indeed if there should be a system.

    “I wish you wouldn’t keep appearing and vanishing so suddenly; you make one quite giddy!”
    “All right,” said the Cat; and this time it vanished quite slowly, beginning with the end of the tail, and ending with the grin, which remained some time after the rest of it had gone.

    i asked on the other thread , but no one replied intelligently. Sure someone here must know what the criteria was for the original badges

    As I understand it, NBT, who was the review mod and knew most of the posters awarded the badges to those that he thought were genuine on the basis of both their reviews and posts. To my knowledge no badges have been disputed bar Anon's challenge on Black Cat.

    Unfortunately this has become too much of an issue about awards rather than a way to identify and mark as many genuine reviews as possible.

    When NBT left, Black Cat didn't have a badge. He was given one later. I don't who gave it to him. There was then a poll about whether he should keep it, which he lost.

    In case anyone is wondering why I haven't voted in my own poll, the reason is that I am still deciding between the last two options.

    Fuck the badge, it getting the escort that's the important thing.

    It's probably a silly idea anyway, the word "Trusted" is probably not the best word, the punter is not going to tell you what he's been up to, could be embarassing.
