Yes, I do have 3 to 4 thoughts as follows but thinking of logic of them as of now.
1- On THANKS per post ratio, lets say 1 person is getting every 1.1 post 1 THANKS so as per that ratio badges.
2- On continuously logging days in forums one(not sure if we are keeping some information save in tables here?).
3- Monthly top thanks getting people badges(here also we need to save information somewhere, you could please let me know if we are saving this somewhere in forums?).
