    2. If one of your comments is badged, you will earn a full hubwheel.

    3. If someone with a hubwheel chooses to, they can promote you to a full hubwheel at any time.

Seems unbalanced. Why not require a badge to promote someone generally, and the user can decide if they want to badge a particular post to do it or spend the badge to promote the user? It gets around the unlikely scenario where some spammer somehow gets a full hubwheel and then mass promotes all their spammy friends.

The goal is really not to set the bar high, but to sift out those that aren't here to contribute.

As mentioned, I think having a limit to how many people you can promote in a day will prevent abuse. Even a 1 per hour limit would likely be enough.
