I've seen some recent comments about doing something (Flagging posts, reminding people to stay on topic, etc.) specifically because that person wants to earn leader.
This is great that so many people want to help! However, doing something specifically to get leader can sometimes not be the best thing. If you're changing your entire to simply earn a badge, don't!
As long as you're you, you're already a leader! You don't need to take specific actions to get the badge! Just be yourself and set a positive example! Doing actions specifically to get leader is a bit silly.
Of course, you can definitely try to get leader! Just try not to do things because you want the badge. Overall, it's just a badge, and you shouldn't change yourself just to try and get it. We're all already leaders! :D
(If any other leaders would like to add on or remove something, just edit this. :D)
