For those who don't know or don't remember, E2 actually has Achievements to unlock. Unfortunately, many of those Achievements are no longer achievable by virtue of having been time-sensitive, by virtue of the associated usergroups being defunct, or by virtue of requiring you to be Nate.

I propose a resorting of the Achievements page into three headers:

My Achievements
Achievements you've collected. You have reached NUMBER out of a total of NUMBER attainable achievements.

Available Achievements
Achievements you've yet to earn. Go get 'em!

Unachievable Achievements
These achievements are no longer available without the use of a time machine. Shucks!

That way the ones that are unavailable due to having occurred in 2008 or whatnot can be separated for us newbie plebs to admire without getting mixed in with the ones that can actually be gotten. This would also open the door to having future time-sensitive achievements. I also wonder if it would be possible for Cool Man Eddie to send a notification of the achievement, or if a notification could pop up in the side like experience points do.

And because I think way too much about this stuff, here's a bunch of suggestions for Achievements because why not.
