in reply to The Order of Gilded Spheres; monks could go geekier with awards

Have to agree with both Diotalevi and Coruscate on this one, but in different proportions. I'm sure it would be cool to have (although I'm not sure if I would use it), but the extra server load from the system would make the site even less responsive. I guess that's really the fundamental consideration in adding features, apart from the obvious "who's going to code and maintain this?" questions.
