I'd love to hear people's thoughts on this: What might 'Achievements' look like on Dreamwidth?

On a related note, back in December I wrote up some possible Glitch-style achievements for love meme participation; slightly revised versions are as follows:

  • Junior Seed of Loving Planter
    Nominated 2 other people for love

  • Intermediate Love Meister
    Nominated 5 other people for love

  • Senior Cardiologist
    Nominated 11 other people for love

  • Novice Promoter of Pretty Good Loving
    Commented on 3 other people's threads

  • Assistant Advocate For Warm 'n Fuzzy Feels
    Commented on 11 other people's threads

  • Senior Serenader of Sweet, Sweet Sap
    Commented on 23 other people's threads

  • International Love-Giver of Mystery
    Commented on another person's thread anonymously

Does anyone have any suggestions for names / descriptions in the same vein for other types of participation? For example: a.) self-nomination; b.) leaving a pride comment on one's own thread;
It is 100% okay and encouraged to comment on your own thread as yourself and list one or two things you have said, done or made that you're feeling proud of right now; think of it as both a message to yourself and as an open invitation to other people to celebrate these things with you.
c.) signal-boosting the meme as a whole; d.) pointing people to one's own thread; e.) ????????,

Also, if any of you have any ideas re: potential visuals / symbols for any of these (perhaps recycling/revising some of the badges from Glitch with credit?), I'd be grateful for that too.

Not a love meme participant, but I like using this concept on Dreamwidth in general. Now I'm thinking of ways to incorporate it into the comm I co-mod.

Neat idea!

:D I will think on it. For specific comms this would be awesome-- like in a cooking comm, making yourself meals. They could even be meals from Glitch! And posting to comms, and commenting on other people's posts in comms. I sometimes lament that communities don't get enough traffic here on DW, and this might be a good booster.

I think this is a neat idea. I loved Glitch's wacky random awards for doing things; some of them could be for understandable things like numbers of comments, but there could also be silly ones like "used 3 semicolons in one comment" or something similarly pointless.

Also, I apologize for nitpicking, but... 24 is not a prime number. To be properly Glitch-like, all the achievements should be for prime numbers of actions. 23 instead?
