Now NoahY is not maintaining this plugin so people are facing issues.
I feel this is one of the critical feature for any QA site to grow, giving badges to users is like encouragement. People will get more involved in QA discussion if they see rewards. Scott really need to think about including this plugin as a part of Q2A. We all can provide inputs to improve this plugin and design in a better way.
@Scott, please let us know your thoughts on this.
