Many of Project-GC users are fond of the Badge-Gen Feature in the Profile Statistics.

Which Badge in the Badge-Gen is the one that you would most like to earn? How far off that target are you?

Head-In-The-Clouds Award because I like climbing mountains.

My favourites are:

  • The shutterbug - I am a bit of a photographer, so I find this one easy, however I hope it encourages some other cachers to get photos of some of the amazing things they see.
  • The author - I write fairly long logs on caches, and I enjoy it when others do the same on my caches.

For us it is our France Badge. We just need two more regions to complete the country. Also we need to find another 120 to get to our 1000 finds in France.

My favorite badge isn't available (yet). I would like to see an DNF badge.

Maybe people wouldn't hesitate to log a DNF when they don't find the cache.

DNF isn't a shame!!!

The Favorite Cacher, as others have said it shows that you've put out some caches that are appreciated by other cachers, not just what you've accomplished.

There are two of us in the Team and we both have different ideas - G likes to earn favourite points on our hides, so we'd love to get to Diamond on The Favourite Cacher (currently Ruby) and the Cache Owner (currently Platinum). C likes going to events and organising them so we'd love to increase our colours on the Social Cacher and Event Host (both currently Silver).

The Wherigo badge (recently) and the Letterboxer are my favourite badges, though I really like the getting new badges (and upgrading them to high values) as well.

I think a lot of the badges are cool, but here are my favorites:

-The Author: Because it makes you write better (or at least longer) logs and I really like this so the cache owner gets more feedback for the work he/she has done.

- The Brainiac: Because I am a fan of mystery caches, espacially the D5s are interesting

- The Rugged Cacher: And of course the other extreme, T5, is also exciting.

I personally like the author badge. It encourages you to work harder to write better logs.

The one I'm most proud of is my 3x diamond The Favorite Cacher badge since that means that other cachers like the caches I put out.

As for badges I like to work on, The Calendar Cacher (5x diamond) and The Social Cacher (diamond) are probably on top (and of course The Travelling Cacher (sapphire), but that  requires a lot of time and money for each new country so it doesn't happen so often).

And what about new badges on PGC ?

We have a lot of favourite badges:

Head-In-The-Clouds Award is the one it is hard for us to earn. No higher mountains nearly (883m, a lot space until 4500m)

The Favorite Cacher gives Feedback on the Quality of the hidden Caches. We got some with over 75%. That make us happy.

The Photogenic Cacher has only 87x active Caches left in Germany. Only 2 are done.

I got my top badge for 12 cache types in a day so that's very special to me.
