Personally I really don't have a problem with people requesting badges like the 10 year badge or the TOR guild badges for themselves. They are very easy to get overlooked by staff. However it may be easier and more private for people just to PM me.
Badges that are not that cut and dry, Jester, Helpful.... should not be nominated by the person receiving them and must go through this thread.
PS: Also just because I give a jerk response, does not mean I didn't give out the badge.
