Would it be possible to add Numbers to the Big Heart Badge?

I see that many of the Badges have levels to them.  I would like to see this for the Big Heart, too.  Maybe the basic Badge for anything below a certain number (10, 50, 100 or whatever), then a new badge for the next "level".

The Big Heart is a very special badge. I believe it is awarded for what you do, not how many times you manage to do it. So putting a number on it , to my mind, would devalue it (just my 2 cents worth).

I understand your feelings.  I would like some way to know how many profiles these folks have adopted.  Is there a way, other than looking at each profile?
You will not be able to tell how many profiles an individual has adopted. The Big Heart Badge is only awarded when a batch of profiles are adopted at one time. And you only get it once, no matter how many times you adopt a batch of profiles. Also many people adopt profiles singly and never get the Big Heart Badge. I don't believe the software is set up to track how many profiles an individual has adopted.

This is interesting, and I wonder just how you would measure it. Let me explain: I have adopted many profiles of my direct ancestors as well as some of their relatives and kept them, but I have also adopted many, many more just to work on them, and then removed myself as manager. (I get them sourced, connected, add Family Tree links for future users and cut them loose. This is mainly for Notables, cemetery work, merges, etc.). I've probably churned through a hundred in the last year. Would it be the profiles you adopted that you keep, or the ones that you adopted and then dropped?


I'm pretty sure there are a lot of folks that do the same as me, while there are others that are appalled by this. Either way it generates a number. Personally I'd rather not know.
