The first thing I do when I wake up in the morning is check to see which badges I might be able to get today.
I yearn for the reputation needed to flag a post, not caring if it's offensive or not. I have no idea what a rollback is, but I want it more than a bear claw. I even read old threads with the hopes of getting a Necromancer badge.
How do you deal with your badge cravings? I'm almost to the point of creating dummy accounts to fulfill my needs. This is certainly raising my cortisol and causing inflammation. Help!
Hello, I'm Alfredo, and I'm a badgeaholic.
I try to be a clear communicator, sharing useful or fun things I have learned.
If you like it, I get rep and badges...
That and make a post about sex that is funny without being too crude, and many points and views will be yours.
Or you can point whore like this....
Try IFing, I've heard it works well with various cravings :) Maybe try only 4h window for PaleoHacks? You may even get to a 24h fast every few days. Then a feast for an hour. and so on :)
I don't cope well with badge-lust. That's why, when it's late at night and my PH peers are sleeping, I sneak onto PH with a large club and clock unsuspecting PHers on the head. Usually a badge pops out of them, as well as a handful of small coins. I then collect their liberated badge and coins, and I've heard rumors that when I reach 100 coins filched, I'll get a 1-Up Badge, too.
I think all my badges came by accident. I just participate in PaleoHacks from all angles. Inquisition, knowledge sharing, topic prodding, encouragement, and a splash of humor. This site is a really great resource.
