Related: BravoNation http://bravo.yahoo.com/ -- an experimental site launched by a very small team at Yahoo! in 2007. I wrote about it on Waxy, describing it as "a web-native equivalent of XBox Live's achievement system, abstracted to work with any online community." http://waxy.org/2007/12/exclusive_yahoo/

Cool, I never heard about this project. It seems like its a Peer2Peer award system, is that right? I considered creating a sort of peer kudos/badge feature as well but there are a lot of issues to overcome with that. Basically the same problems Twitter has. How do I stop people from giving the "free diet pills award!" :) Thoughts?
