Ask - and ye shall receive. @Smokey suggested that we need a central place to collect what the community is asking for when it comes to Badges.
And - so we are ready for ideas … and as they arrive … I will capture and dynamically reorganize the page as we go.

i.e. those sites that you are posting out to - e.g. mastodon, twitter, tumblr …

@JohnPhilpin OK! Here are some posts/conversations gleaned from my replies/favorites where people have mentioned new pin suggestions:
on which basis I have started building the list …
World Traveller Pin - for posting from so many time zones @smokey
Pin for more than One time zone @smokey
Numerical Milestones - not just streaks @smokey / @chet / @kaa
30 Days of Photos - as opposed to 30 days of posts @smokey
A Post that garents more than (10?) replies @kaa
A Post of over 1000 words @kaa

One of your posts has appeared in the ‘Discover’ tab!
You’ve replied to (x) different posts (today/this week)!
You’ve posted every Saturday morning for the last month!
You used an emoji tag!
You just used the secret word for today!
Using an emojitag (emphasizes Discover and the emojitag feature, and they’re already scanned for already, at least in part)
Comments-related (first comment and/or N comments; emphasizes interaction)
Posting every weekday in a month (back when people were still trying for the 30-day pin and posting about it, there were a number of posts from people whose streaks ended because they forgot to post on the weekend, usually because they’re offline/off social-type stuff on the weekend, and this feels like a good way to still recognize a time-based streak while also respecting different attitudes towards usage. Proabably really difficult to implement, though, but putting it out there anyway, for riffing on, if nothing else).
Being recommended by someone on Micro Monday (not sure how I feel about this, but it’s an idea that popped up)
Being on @monday (again, not sure how I feel about it; it’s going to be even harder to obtain since there will only be 52/year at best)
Brought a friend (not sure how this could be scanned for/detected, though)
Following 10 (20?) people (I see a bunch of people, often new, who follow only a couple of people; it’s certainly a valid choice, but I feel that you don’t get as much value from M.b if you aren’t following at least a dozen or so people, and maybe a pin would encourage some folks, esp. new ones, to start following a few more and make M.b feel more valuable/useful to them. Not sure the best exact threshold, but 10-25 feels right; not too many, but enough to move the needle.)
And it’s been so long since I’ve earned a pin, but (separate from “what pins can we add”) I’m wondering if it’s also possible to improve the notification when you earn a pin (main timeline blue infobar, and something in the apps). I seem to recall that currently the pin notification is only the “You have earned N pins” phrase on the Account screen, so it’s really easy to forget about/miss. OK, I’ve rambled too long; sorry!
