The staff should have thought about removing badges more. Badges give people motivation to edit articles! Sorry but I just belive they cause to harm to anything and are more beneficial than harmful to this wikia.
This was thought on for a pretty long while. Badges are good for small wikis to give incentive to edit articles where there is no way but going up. On popular wikis, badgehunters are a pretty big concern, and a bunch of top wikis have them disabled.
