BadgeGen Belts
BadgeGen's belt system has been revised from the initial version. The new system is based on a points system: points are awarded based on various criteria and the sum of all points determines your overall belt level.
There are 36 possible belts.
 If you have less than 30 points, you will receive the White belt.
 At 30 points, a Yellow belt will be awarded.
 Every ten/twelve* points after that will give you an extra stripe on your belt.
 After 4 stripes**, you will be awarded a new colour belt.
 At 400 points, the Golden Black Belt (the highest ranking) is awarded.
* after 220 points, 12 points are required per level
** with the exception of the black belt
Criteria:
Points are awarded based on the following conditions (may be changed and altered at some point).
 One point per 100 caches found.
 2 points per event hosted, maximum of 30 points
 0.5 points per difficulty/terrain combination found in excess of 40 combinations
 0.25 points per cache type found on day with most cache types (maximum 3 pts)
 10 points for completing the Difficulty/Terrain matrix

BadgeGen calculates all points to two decimal points.
Values above can be assumed
to be exact
(ie: 292=292.00)
A point total equal to an upper bound will result in the higher level belt (for example, if you have 292.00 points, you will receive a black belt  not a brown belt).
The Golden BlackBelt is only awarded if the point total is greater than or equal to 400.00 points.
