At the moment the metal of your badge (Silver, Gold) is a function of when you joined the DAO-Forum the first time, not of your current activity.
I propose that the ‘color’ of your badge is a dynamic thing: silver members that are active, take over a gold badge from inactive gold members.
Maybe: get more colors out there: platinum, gold, silver, bronze, iron.
And: add a badge for being a Seedrs shareholder.
That is much more fair. But again I am not sure in a real DAO (which we currently are not) if such badges also follow number of governance tokens owned etc.
there is some merit in changing the badge colour based on inactivity (criteria to be defined)
what is your definition of active?
Good point, maybe online once every 2 weeks and a certain minimum reading time?
In addition, correspondence can be sent to badge holders periodically to inform them of either upgrade or degrade with reasons
