- I would like the time badges be valid only if the account has been actively crunching for that long, but this is a tricky thing to measure. If we are too lax, there will be ways to "game" the system, and if we are too strict, some deserving users may be cut out. I'm thinking that the time badges should only display if a user's current RAC > 0?...


Can't you just make a sum of Elapsed time of returned WU's regardless of their Validity (or something similar)? This is how WCG awards its badges (w/o Error tasks) and I think it works fine - when I am active, the time for badges goes up. When I am not, time counter stops :-)
I know - this would be hard to measure rectroactively :-(

Cheers, NI!
