    Good ideas 🔥 D Ξ U ϟ 🔥!

    I would like to point out that Oracle is already a sun badge for posting 100 answers with 3+ votes. Great ideas otherwise, voted up!

    Good ideas, but I think Veteran, like the other member badges, should be tree themed.

    I don't know of a tree name that could replace veteran. Anyone have any suggestion on what it should be named? Perhaps a rare or endangered tree name? Let me know what you think.

    The theme of the Member of KA for ___ years is "Old Trees". The cypress tree can live to 1,000 years, redwood can live to 2,000, sequoia can live to 3,000, and bristlecone lives to 4,000. Notice a trend? Now, there's only one known individual tree that's five thousand years old, and that's a bristlecone too. However, there is a yew tree whose age is estimated to be 4,000 - 5,000, so that could be an option.

    I think there should be a very special badge for those who have been on Khan since it started. It wont give points, it will just be a thank you for sticking with them for so long. Perhaps a tree that has been reported to have existed in ancient times?

    I don't really like *TBD* as it is impossible to get for some users, and badges should make you strive to do something good. Otherwise, good ideas!

    I especially like the idea to finish the World of Math. 

    I don't really like the idea for the badge that is given when you join in 2005. I know I didn't join in 2005, which would be discouraging if I wanted it. Also, I agree with Admiral βetasin with what he said about badges.

    Interesting ideas.

    I'm not sure if anyone even has 1000 questions, let alone 1000 questions with 50+ votes. I think that one is too hard.

    I’ve got a badge that is now similarly as unattainable as a joining in twenty-oh-five badge would be. I was fortunate enough to have the financial resources to make a donation to Khan Academy in twenty seventeen.That gave me a specific badge whose name I can’t recall offhand that is marked in my display as “retired”. I had noticed when I first got active last summer that there were similar badges for twenty fifteen and twenty sixteen, but none of the three year-specific donor badges show up as potential badges now. I also don’t recall seeing one for twenty eighteen.

    @Regina, yes, those old “Patron” badges for 2015, 2016, and 2017 were purposely “retired” since they couldn’t be earned anymore, as is done for any badge that is now longer attainable.

    The 2018 Patron badge is available as seen here:
