Badge thresholds on Ask Askbot

On Ask Askbot at, given the huge traffic, some badge defaults should be changed from their defaults, in particular the trio - Popular question (bronze) - Notable question (silver) - Famous question (gold)

Consistency check: the thresholds for popular, notable, famous should always stay well ordered, ie popular < notable < famous.

Currently, popular = 150, notable = 250, famous = 50.

On ask-askbot, given the traffic, I would suggest popular = 1k notable = 3k famous = 5k

@Evgeny: some antispam on ask-askbot could also help here; I think most views are really spam robots visiting the pages.

@Evgeny: I now have 16 gold badges, 16 silver badges, and 24 bronze badges... most of them meaningless.

@Evgeny: I am now at 21 gold badges, 21 silver badges, 33 bronze badges, for no good reason.
