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
  • 20 points for either finding caches in 15 distinct states or 5 distinct countries. 40 points are not awarded if both conditions are satisfied.
  • 10 points per 50 caches found on day with most finds, maximum of 40 points
  • 0.5 points per 7 consecutive days with finds in largest streak. 10 point bonus at 366 days

  • 1 point per gemstone badge (excluding country badges)
  • 2 points for every year since your first cache find

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 Black-Belt is only awarded if the point total is greater than or equal to 400.00 points.
