Ok for me it has to be the Endurance Badge - or blood badge as my teamies call it - a lot of work and energy - and once you have got it you know you never have to play that hard again :)|

For me it was my Team Leader badge. I know, easy-peasy to win but I felt really proud for myself and the team when it showed up on my profile!|
I'm rather fond of my Treasure and Mission Impossible badges too!

The Team Stakeholder badge.|
I love playing for my team (The Beatles 4 ever), but often score a little lower than I should, due to some nervousness.

My Team Stakeholder badge. It feels nice to earn that much points for my team.|

There's a good number of replies here.|
I love my author badges and Endurance.

My author badges, especially the 15 categories, Editor's Choice and Crossword Author ones. |

All of the Author Badges. ;)|

Immortal and endurance equally|

My authoring ones for sure. They represent the greatest effort. |

I honestly thought I was going to come up short but my teammates believed in me and that kept me plugging away. The moment when the screen said "You have graduated to The Immortals Division" ... well, let's just say the squeal was a tad on the noisy side :)

Badges for authoring are definitely very satisfying and I love mine.|
In terms of badges for playing, I think the one I did the biggest happy dance for was the Buzzy Bee. :-)

Ooh Terry - see post 5 - this is a duplicate thread! |
Next time a mod grumbles about thread duplication I shall send them here!
Mine is still the Knockout because I missed getting it by two points the first week I played, and then spent a year playing before I finally won it. Yay! Of course it wasn't as exhausting as getting Endurance, but I was still delighted and relieved.
Rowena founded our team about 15 months ago. We assumed that the reason she didn't get the team leader badge was that there were two team members who had the badge. One of them had founded a team with a dozen members, and run it for about a year. Rowena handed over leadership to me but I shan't get the badge either.
Apparently small teams don't count. I can't think why not - there are some "small" teams which are more stable, active and successful than some of the medium and large ones. Size isn't always everything!

Badges of which I'm most proud...|
Hardcore - because it was tough
Obscure Researcher - because it was tough
And my Lucky Duck, for which I did absolutely nothing but which everyone wants!

My author badges, and Jack of Many Trades. I'm nearly there for Jack of all Trades, too, which I've been working toward for at least a year. |

I think I'm proud of each badge as I get it because each represents a challenge won. Speed Demon possibly because I'm not fast! Like every one else I'd love a 'lucky duck' & at the moment I'm working my way through treasure & mission impossible, I'm sure I'll be proud of them when they are completed.|

Anything geography, but in particular the "world champ"|

The Treasure Hunter badge and the Obscure Knowledge badge.|

It has to be immortal as the times I stayed up to do the late round (3am at times) and run round neighbours when my broadband was off wasn't a one off but 4 1/2 months of application. During it I also won impossible which is one of the hardest I have, as I played well over 800 rounds before getting it. There are a few others I'd like which are in that vein but probably don't have the endurance for more after so many globals, especially hard core which I could get this time round as more people playing would have it already.|

I'm most proud of any of the Author badges I have, but also some of the other ones that took a lot of time/effort to get. My Jack of Many Trades badge just showed up in my mailbox about an hour ago, got my 20th category win this morning FINALLY! I seriously doubt I'll even get up like maybe 40 or 50 categories let alone the 100 category badge, so I'm glad I'm so pleased with my badge for winning 20 |
