I know badges and ranks (gamification) must be think as a whole. But if we now think about just the badges and criteria's. Situation at the moment, example numbers:
Badge --> Kudos received
|How many kudos have to receive to earn the badge||1||10||25||50||100|
|How many times granted||10000||100||40||30||20|
Badge --> Kudos given
|How many kudos have to give to earn the badge||1||10||25||50||100|
|How many times granted||10000||7000||900||800||700|
And if your goal is to get members to give kudos to others should you create more badges between 1-10 (Kudos received) and 10-25 (Kudos given) to courage/motivate to do so? Or is the best practice to renew all the levels at once?
I don't think there's a wrong answer here. I have historically recommended rewarding Kudos Received more than Kudos Given. It's easy to click around the site and give Kudos for things that aren't that valuable to gain a badge.
