the obscene levels of badge inequality we see in contemporary derpi is a perfect example of the dysfunctional madness seen across the site, as a greater number of badges are concentrated in the hands of an elite few while the rest of the site is scrambling over crumbs.
we need a radical redistribution of trixie badges now.
But seriously, (I believe this might be a rhetorical question) why does Derpibooru (the user) have so many Trixie badges? Excluding one badge, they were all awarded within 27 seconds starting at 2022-02-07 17:06:59 UTC and have the same hover text (TRIXIE BEST PONY).
For fun though, you could turn it into a novelty account that has all 290 badges in the database. Even the unused ones. Kinda like a showcase.
That’s what I did with it initially, but I didn’t want to undermine the exclusivity of custom OC/Cutiemark badges (after all, they should be unique for our supporters), so I just filled the account with Trixie badges for fun. I am thinking of just resetting it back to having no badges though, or perhaps just a single Trixie badge.
For fun, here’s what all badges in the database would’ve looked like if we didn’t hide the remainder under a dropdown.
