Matt, do want a gold badge?

Since the reversal badge seems a little worthless why not give it away for free, and with 8K helping others out every day, it might as well be you. I will sacrifice this question, just need -5 votes and then all you need is 20 up votes. Voila

I think Kev and Rob are right. But I would really like a Creme Egg... Mmmmm, chocolate!

I was figuring extra points for research :)

Love Creme Eggs. Just bought a pack of six from my local (Aussie) supermarket. It's slightly different Cadbury here though.

My fiance works for Cadburys here in the UK. Bought home an 8kg box of Buttons once - cost her £3.50 UK money!

@Ian - dude - that is immense! Hope Kraft don't screw her over though... :/

20 upvotes is still very hard to achieve...

Also, it might be easier for him to update the version of StackExchange that's running and go for Electorate (voting on 600 questions), or Fanatic (like me, for 100 days straight).

When you have the power for the code, then you can alter the rules, right?

Sure, but he's hardly going to introduce the "becauseIamMatt badge"
Mar 19, 2010 at 12:58 AM Rob Farley
I don't actually have any influence over the version of stack exchange or anything else that's running, i'm a mod rather than an admin... But Rob - definitely +1 for the tagging - LOL

Yup, I'm expecting for the Taxonomist badge for that one!
Mar 19, 2010 at 06:06 AM Rob Farley
Hahaha I'm going to be eating a lot of Creme Eggs if so! :)

If Matt wants a gold badge, I'm sure he'll get one in time - it's not that hard to get one. In the interest of trying to grow the site, I don't think we should be 'fixing' questions to reward individuals - that seems a bit elitist.

I like this response the best - joking aside from my previous comment.

New code box

There's a new way to format code on the site - the red speech bubble logo will automatically format T-SQL for you. The original code box is still there for XML, etc. More details here.
