Author Badge - Does it last

+2 votes
If you achieve a 100+ word average in your logs, but it falls back below 100, do you still have the diamond badge, or does it change?

If it never dropped, you could write 100 words for your first ever find, then just put "TFTC" for all subsequent logs and still claim your diamond badge.

I'd imagine it changes, as it's an average of all your logs. I've never let it drop below 100 to test that though.

I would expect so as well. This happened to me with another badge when the D/T rating of one of my visited caches was changed. Badges seem to be evaluated with the latest information available, which makes sense to me.

Coming back under 100 words, you lose again the badge diamond.
That's what happened to me, so always write a lot.
