Last year I thought it would be interesting to see how the number of owners of system awarded microbadges changes over time, so I set up this list for last year and now this one for 2010 (ending 12/30/10).

You can click on the numbers for each of the badges below to see what the new totals are throughout 2011.

Comments are welcome.

Have a happy and safe New Years!!!

1. Board Game: Trivial Pursuit: The Year in Review – Questions about 1993 [Average Rating:4.80 Unranked]

Game Reviews:

Copper Game Review Microbadge (5 Reviews): 1435 (+265 from 09)

Silver Game Review Microbadge (50 Reviews): 59 (+18 from 09)

Gold Game Review Microbadge (100 Reviews): 19 (+4 from 09)

Stats: The increase this year in the number of members in each of the three levels was almost exactly the same as last year. 4.1% of the coppers made it to silver this year which is a slight increase over last year’s 3.5%. Only 4 members made it to Gold this year which is also consistent with last year. The gold reviewer badge is once again the most exclusive microbadge I cover on this list.

My take: Same take as last year: Copper level looks about right. However, Silver/Gold levels should be lowered so that ~15% of Copper Reviewers obtain Silver and ~5% obtain Gold.

Session Reports:

Copper Session Report Microbadge (5 Session): 1871 (+285 from 09)

Silver Session Report Microbadge (50 Session): 116 (+16 from 09)

Gold Session Report Microbadge (100 Session): 54 (+5 from 09)

Stats: Surprisingly, new members of the copper level went down by about 13% over last year (one of the few that saw a decrease from last year). ~6% of Copper Session Reporters made it to the Silver level and ~3% made it to Gold which are both similar to last year.

My take: Same as last year: Copper level looks to be in a good spot. Although slightly better than reviewer levels, both Silver and Gold should likely be lowered a bit to get into the 15%/5% range.

GeekLists: (with at least 5 thumbs up per list)

Copper GeekList Microbadge (5 GeekLists): 1496 (+327 from 09)

Silver GeekList Microbadge (25 GeekLists): 240 (+73 from 09)

Gold GeekList Microbadge (50 GeekLists): 85 (+28 from 09)

Stats: 16% of Copper GeekListers made it to the Silver level (up 2% from last year) and ~6% made it to Gold (similar to last year). The number of new members in the gold level doubled that of last year.

My take: Same as last year: This category still seems to be nicely proportioned and is where I based my other adjustments from. I think the 15%/5% thresholds for Silver/Gold respectively seem to be a good target.

Images: (with at least 3 thumbs up per image)

Copper Image Microbadge (10 Images): 3700 (+1102 from 09)

Silver Image Microbadge (30 Images): 1505 (+497 from 09)

Gold Image Microbadge (100 Images): 445 (+162 from 09)

Stats: I was surprised to see that this didn't new members in copper wasn't higher than last year's increase. 40% of Copper Image Uploaders made it to the Silver level, and around 12% made it to Gold.

My take: Similar to last year: With over twice as many members in the copper level as any of the other badges, copper should be higher - maybe around 20-25 or require a higher thumb threshold. Silver & Gold should also be increased to levels that would be closer to the 15%/5% thresholds.

File Uploader: (with at least 2 thumbs up per file)

Copper File Uploader Microbadge (5 Files): 1503 (+527 from 09)

Silver File Uploader Microbadge (25 Files): 146 (+56 from 09)

Gold File Uploader Microbadge (50 Files): 52 (+17 from 09)

Stats: I didn't have the 08 data for this badge, but I was surprised to see that members with copper increase by more than 33%. Around 10% of Copper File Uploaders made it to the Silver level and less than 4% made it to Gold (similar to last year).

My take: Similar to last year: With the big increase of new copper members, this level of entry does seem to be about right. The Silver/Gold levels are still lower than 15% / 5% targets I was looking for but are closer to the mark than many of the others.

Golden Meeple: (10,000 total thumbs)

Golden Meeple Microbadge: 394 (+213 from 09)

Stats: Wow. The number of Golden Meeple recipients more than doubled from last year. Not sure if this means more quality contributions or members are just giving out more thumbs, but that is a huge year over year increase considering it took several years just to get to last year's 181 members of this group.
