I just looked around in the profiles of the top crunchers in PrimeGrid. I noticed some have thousands of factors found in the PPS sieve project.
I think for many people it would be more interesting if there are (difficult) badges for factors found, something like the "Primes Found" badges (counter badges). Of course there can't be a counter badge for thousands. But maybe a Bronze Badge for 10 factors, Silver for 20 and so on...
Have a nice day,
hope I can read some answers soon! :)
