If I do bump up the amount of likes then yes, it will be across the board.
I'll be making a change to the trust level like limit and not doing it individually because that is a bit much effort to monitor and manage.
As for the badge related to liking, that basically defeats the purpose of those badges.
Those badges specifically require a person to actually click like on things, changing them seems a bit odd to me... If you don't like things usually then you should be able to just spam like things and get the badges you are after then you won't have to worry about liking things again.
