Apologies if this has already been asked and answered, but what is the story behind why the Golden Meeple is awarded as a microbadge for earning 10,000 combined thumbs but it represents 5,000 thumbs in the total thumb counts?

Wouldn't a Platinum / Diamond / whatever is better than gold Meeple microbadge make more sense for 10,000 thumbs and the Golden Meeple microbadge be awarded for getting 5,000 thumbs?

Also, any reason why there is no Copper/Silver Meeple microbadge like there are for the other categories?

BTW, is there code for showing the golden meeple icon like there is for meeple ?

It's all perfectly obvious if you look at the details posted in the [thread-deleted] thread, by [user-deleted]!

I don't have an answer, but I don't think this is it - there is a different GOTW badge.
