damainman I'll keep watch for that (I'm really fascinated by principles of gamification, so I follow the rep system religiously), but I noticed that while I was awarded the Fanatic Badge a couple days ago, the counter hasn't reset, so instead of being a day or two toward another Devotee badge, I'm just camping out with full green on all three.
Maybe a few of us could run an experiment on you, wherein you say something helpful on a blog post or tutorial (maybe even my own =P) and then we get you three likes and see if you're awarded the Good Comment badge and points, just points, or neither.
Make a note right now of how many badges you have according to that "Top" number on your me/badges screen, and how many good Comment Badges you've earned in the breakdown below. Then post here where you made your comment, and we'll see if a few of us can give you likes. Don't forget you'll get 5 rep just for each like, and 2 for making the comment!
