I've been trying for various badges recently, and a lot of them are very good (like encouraging you to try chat, encouraging you to vote). I recently tried unsuccessfully for the 'tumbleweed' badge (at https://math.stackexchange.com/q/411641/51970), which I realize now is a bad idea.
After that experience I realized that some badges cause serious annoyance. Specifically, the archaeologist badge. 100 posts is a lot, and it seems that people don't like old questions popping up on the front page for trivial reasons. Is there any way to try for the archaeologist badge in a constructive way, or is it one that should be left alone? Are there any other badges better left unsought?
