I've been working on the Symantec Connect Forums for quite a long time now. Most of that time I was listed as a Symantec Employee, but in the last couple of months I took voluntary redundancy from my role in the Certification Team. I lost lots of my badges on the forums!
After a long time I have got what I think is the ultimate badge.. Trusted Advisor.
Thank you to those people involve - Swathi and Leslie that I know of, but I'm sure there are others too.
