I have a nice Idea, which I do post here because this project is a statistic project.

Picture for the Badge: A bug with a "No" sign over it. You know, the sign with the diagonal running bar. And it does "no" out the bug.

Who gets it: anyone who has an account number smaller than 100 in at least one of his/her Projects.

a) is it possible to pull that info out of the stats you get from the Projects?
b) what do you think of the idea?

Hehe, really nice idea and would be of course possible.
Stats are always given out with the account id of the user.
I guess according to the amount of projects it would be even possible to give that out in different states: for example bronze for 10 ATAs, silver for 50, gold for 100 etc.
Alas, there are now a lot of projects which are no more and their stats are probably lost, this idea comes a bit late.
I'm pretty sure some people (including me) would have a high level badge of it when this would have been introduced in the early years of WUProp... ;-)

I have all that data for sure, in fact I did do an 'MM' for it at one point.

However, the one thing going against it is where projects import the boinc wide data...

I actually have ids < 100 in 106 of the 171 projects I have in my data.

Not to mention there is nothing stopping anyone from setting up a project of their own or even several. Teams could set up a project allowing only teammates have access. There are just too many ways to skew such a badge.
