There is no trophy for Android smartphones, only tablets. There is one for 'wireless carriers', but that seems a like a not needed trophy. Where smartphones really is a needed one.

There is a trophy says "Android", but it is only for tablets. Should not both smartphones and tablets have their own trophies? They each have their own forum, so should not they have their own individual trophies?

Also, what about Windows tablets?

Basically, shouldn't the forums match the trophies. Others beyond that I can see, but there really should be ones to match the individual forums.

Since we have years of service, as well as the legacy "night owl" badge, something along the lines of continuous time on the forums.
5 hours with less than 10 minutes between replies/interactions (or x hours with less than x time between interactions).
Something like a stopwatch or hourglass for a symbol.
"dedication/time killer"

This could pose an issue with people posting mindless nonsense every 10 minutes to keep up with the total, but if they have those tendencies it would happen anyway.
