Sweetie, so that you understand, "depreciated" means "no longer useful".
The reason for this that many wikis have found Achievements promoting bad and negative behaviour in their communities. "Badge HUnters" seek to game the system simply to "earn" badges in the shortes, most unfair means possible. For example, making 10 tiny edits instead of one or two sessions of significan edits, just to earn a badge. Which causes accusations and fights.
As a result, many wikis have either turned off Achievements, or never turn them on in the first place (experienced users who've started their new wikis).
They've been turned off here in Central for as long as I can remember.
Yes, *some* wikis don't have this, but sadly they are very much the minority.
So, Sweetie, they are not going to be updated. They are not coming back. Sorry.
For one you can stop calling me Sweetie (I'm not a villan)
And two yes I've seen that happen on a couple of wikis before, but I think if people are just badge hungry, they should find something else to do and leave the badges to people who actually are doing work and putting effort into doing anything. If people just wanna brag about how many badges they are or were their at on the editing leaderboard, they should remove the privelages from those types of people (the admins should be able to do that).
