GiantBomb Achievement Suggestions

So we know an achievement system of some sort is coming for doing stuff around the site- we just don't know when. It will come though at some point, if you trust those engineers upstairs. Anyways, post any ideas or suggestions you'd have for GiantBomb achievements here. Bonus points for making the title an obscure reference.

Here are some of mine.

  • Rorie- Write an awesome guide for the site
  • Obsessed- Get over 1,000 points on any page on the site
  • Social Butterfly- Have over 100 friends in your network
  • Fluffernutter- Write a totally stalkerific page about someone in the games industry
  • Jose Apple- Upload a horrific amount of images to GiantBomb
  • You got something to prove, kid?- Be one of the top 100 wiki editors

Now, dear reader, it is YOUR TURN! Post some achievements you think it would be cool to see on GiantBomb when they launch their achievement system.

I see Microsoft's achievements for the 360 have started leeching into pop culture.  We now feel the need to get points for everything we do, lol. Is this good or bad?

intresting stuffs. I am not sure about giving ideas to this. but good too se some improvement done to the GB

I'm a little worried about the achievement system, just because I think some people will spam or exploit the system just to get a achievement. Sure, the same people who would do this could do this now with the wiki system, but I just think this may get more people to do stuff like that. Hopefully it won't happen.

I agree, that's why the majority of achievements should be qualitative and not quantitative. A few quantitative achievements will be alright, as long as it would be impossible to get them through spamming without being so incredibly obvious that it would attract the mods attention.

Successful Troll Is Successful- Get permabanned from GiantBomb

Don't know what you got, until it's gone- Come back from being banned twice.

there are no chicks on giantbomb silly.

Yeah an achievement for being banned would be great. You go out of your way to get banned to get the achievement but it doesn't matter because you are now banned. That would be a funny paradox.

No...I love the word Vagina and I have been known to use it quite frequently.
