I have a simple idea to fix the Recruiter badge, and my local XFAC community encouraged me to post it here so here it is:

Initially the Recruiter badge would measure recruitment based on new players claiming invite codes emailed to them by another player. In the last almost five years of me playing this game, so far only three players have used emailed invites.

The invite codes became moot once the game went GA back in 2014 or so.

Instead of recognizing recruitment success based on the now unnecessary invite codes, why not let agents nominate between 1 and 5 mentors, either once they reach a certain level, or perhaps once for each milestone they earn for the yearly recognition badges (eg, Vanguard, Luminary, Sage, etc)?

Tally those votes, and award either Recruiter points to agents who act as mentors for new players, or create a new Mentor badge.

Walking to Nowhere in Particular and an Autumn Braise
Some years I bounce of the wall with excitement at the first whiff of autumn in the air, and other years it's a slow fugue that lets off finally in the spring. This is an off year, I think, and I'd been feeling a bit overwhelmed. Still, I have to get out of...
