Let's see,

I've been a GM in one game - http://rpggeek.com/thread/634094/call-of-cthulhu-a-day-on-th...

And a player in three - http://rpggeek.com/thread/693490/the-jericho-vigil-ooc, http://rpggeek.com/wiki/page/Alexandr_Zaitzev and a Pathfinder game that I can't find.

That should be four points, and Copper for me, please.

Played / ran 15 games (see profile), so gold. I don't think any of the games ran for more than a year. 1 of them probably didn't take 3 months to fail, but it doesn't matter. Still above 10.

I think the levels for silver and gold are a little low. Any ideas for next levels?

I don't think the next levels have been discussed at all. Maybe we do need some extra levels?

The current levels were left a bit lower because achieving even those is an accomplishment, given the fizzling out rate with PbF games. Right now 54 people have the Copper one and only 26 the Golden one.

Yeah, but that is almost a 2:1 ratio (copper to gold) meaning there is a lot of gold level compared to the number of copper. If I take e.g. session reports, then I have a 36:1 ratio, images is 8:1 (and images is a lot easier so this ratio is expected to be higher).

Not that it matters much. As long as it makes people play more PBF games to get to the next level.

Hmm. Some day I really ought to construct a catalog of the games I've participated in. I've got some of that data scattered in a few places, but it's not up-to-date, and there's no central index anywhere. Off the top of my head...

- I've GM'ed seven Pathfinder games to completion.
- I've played in dozens of Pathfinder Society games that ran to completion.
- I'm playing in two Pathfinder Adventure Paths which I believe have been going for more than a year.
- I've played in three Pathfinder Adventure Paths that ended prematurely, but I think only one of these probably lasted more than three months.
- I've played a couple of non-Pathfinder games which ran to completion, a couple more that ended prematurely, and a couple more that are still going. I'd have to check how many months the ones that didn't complete ran (or have been running).

If an exact point count is necessary to apply for the microbadge, then it may be a while before I can apply. But it sure looks like I qualify for the gold badge.

Oh! Unexpectedly I'm at the gold level. Here are ten qualifying games:

Call of Cthulhu: Sucker Punch
Fiasco: Hogzilla
Fiasco: The Bull
Basic D&D: Threats of the Past
Amber: Relative Pressure
Fighting Fantasy: The Wishing Well
Rogue Trader: Eye of the Needle
Fiasco: Objective Zebra
Dark Heresy: Shattered Hope
Fiasco: Hogzilla Returns!

I'll just give the badges to myself, then...

I'm at 3 points.

2 points for 2 different Monster Kart Mayhem games.
1 point for Psi-punk.HelperMonkey.com.

I'll have a fourth point coming up when the newest MKM game finishes.

Unfortunately, all of my three or so other PBF games died even before they got started.

So... copper?

Not that I mind but I'm not sure if they count towards pbf games for the purpose of the badges. Dave did mention they count for 1 point for the GM's that ran them, but as a player I don't know if they are counted.

You are correct - they we're play by forum games and a ton of work. GMs ran many tables during those 2 weeks. They shall count 1 point for each event!

Ah yes some rules lawyering is called for!

Happy to hand back if that's the decision, I certainly don't want to overplay my puny hand.

I interpreted Dave as answering a question over how much GMs should count DoD & MoM for, to head off complication from GMing a large number of games.

Well then sign me up for a copper PBF participant badge for Mountains of Madness and Dungeons of Doom.

I take it site wide games will be the only exemption to the three month rule?

Found my Dungeon of Doom play.

Item for Geeklist "The Dungeon of Doom Adventure"

And I found for Mountains of Madness.

Item for Geeklist "The Mountains of Madness - 2P Adventure"

The rule is 3 months or ran to completion. Those ran to completion. More or less.

I'm not going to openly mention the points for those site-wide adventures (since they had award micros of their own), but I hate to discourage anyone who might otherwise be on the cusp of joining us!

Based upon Nevov's post of integrity below and some reflection, we really should only allow the points for GMs of MoM and DoD. We had participant badges for those so player participation in those site-wide events won't count points here.

You know, thinking further about this I don't feel right claiming a PBF badge on the strength of only playing DoD/MoM. They after all were site-wide events not PBF, and it's PBF that this is to reward. It doesn't feel satisfying to just waltz in and have a badge without any additional effort.

And if I'm going to get lawyery on myself, the special events were played-by-geeklist not PBF. So I'm handing mb back in until I qualify outright properly.

See you in the PBF threads!
