Going to throw "Spirited" back in the ring.  We hold the City in our hearts and Paragon Chat gives us the Spirit of the City.  We are a very "Spirited" community in keeping the torch lit.
"There are worlds out there where the sky is burning, and the sea's asleep, and the rivers dream; people made of smoke and cities made of song. Somewhere there's danger, somewhere there's injustice, and somewhere else the tea's getting cold. Come on, Ace. We've got work to do!" - The Doctor

I would like to offer Unquenchable again. It means unable to satisfy. Our torches will burn forever!

/em holdtorch

Unquenchable for sure! Though that may work better as a 15th or maybe even 20th...

Fitting with the previous years trends, how about "Everlasting" or "Unassailable"?

I think these are available:

Ecstatic

Exuberant
When it's too tough for everyone else,
It's just right for me.......
( unless it's cold, or raining , or dirty,
 or there are Sappers, man I Hate those Guys )

Seeing as how I have a few time-power related characters, "Timeless" garners my vote.

You're in luck!

Timeless won last year. ;)

(Then again, maybe this is because you went back in time and rigged the vote....)

Among other prior Anniversary Badges: Celebrant, Reveler, Pursuer/Elusive, Merrymaker, Entertainer, Jubilant, Exultant, Lucky, Rhapsodic.

Any other badge name can searched on Paragon Wiki, so folks can see if the name is already used as a badge or not.

I'm going to throw in a couple of suggestions, Unflinching and Indelible. (I also still like Spirited.)

Unflinching because, what are you nuts?--Unflinching doesn't need an explanation; you wear a badge title like that because you're a bad ass, 'nuff said. And basically, that's this community in a nutshell. (Although I can't take credit for the suggestion, I saw it thrown around somewhere by somebody else, I can't remember.)

Indelible doesn't pack as much punch, but it doesn't have to. Looking at Tahquitz's examples above, not every badge title needs to one-up the last title in defiant vigor. Some of them were just about giving a celebratory or sentimental vibe, not necessarily a vibe drenched in conflict.

Quote
in·del·i·ble
inˈdeləb(ə)l/Submit
adjective
(of ink or a pen) making marks that cannot be removed.
syonyms: ineradicable, permanent, lasting, ingrained, persisting, enduring, unfading, unforgettable, haunting, never to be forgotten
"indelible memories"
not able to be forgotten or removed.
"his story made an indelible impression on me"
sy   onyms: ineradicable, permanent, lasting, ingrained, persisting, enduring, unfading, unforgettable, haunting, never to be forgotten
"indelible memories"



And originally I was going to throw Resurgent into the ring; but I wanted to see whether anyone else would think to. (And other than Lithy throwing it out as a drunken afterthought, no one has. ;D)

I can't think about that word (Resurgent) without also thinking about the day Zwillinger announced a new powerset just hours before NCSoft ambushed and canned Paragon Studios, and mere weeks before a feature-packed Issue 24 would have released. Two new powersets had just been introduced the previous month. Three new powersets and a new power pool were planned for release within the next month.

Issue 24: Resurgence.

I've always hoped the community would choose it as a badge title (Resurgent) when it's the most likely to be a proper <expletive> gut-punch to NCSoft to avenge their horrible mismanagement of our game and community and one of the best dev teams ever; such as when games like City of Titans, Ship of Heroes, Valiance Online and Heroes and Villains are launching (Btw whatever happened to AP Revival?). You might think NCSoft would never notice; but if timed right, the gaming press would certainly help us make NCSoft notice, and it would benefit the spiritual successors with extra publicity.

But regarding these games, right now I kind of feel like the general sentiment out there on Facebook and forums and such is more on the side of, "Show me; I can be as supportive as all get-out, but still say show me." And I totally think fans can be forgiven for being both supportive and realistic. :)

Someone voted for Indelible! I didn't even like it enough to vote for it and it was my suggestion!

Also I forgot to suggest Pantsless McBadgeface.

A tie adds an extra touch of class to the pantsless look.

You can change your vote at any time, so you can use your second or third choice vote to prevent a tie.
