Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

When I look at the list of people having gained the 'Student' badge, the list is full of unavailable questions, from July 7th onwards on page 2.

The same bug occurs in StackOverflow, from page 205 onwards (at time of edit).

It seems that something happened between 2:49 and 2:24 on july the 7th...

This question came from our discussion, support, and feature requests site for professional and independent game developers.

Have you tried reporting this to Meta Stack Overflow? It would surely get more publicity there. Though hopefully it will still be seen by the Stack Exchange employees here. – Ricket Aug 1 '11 at 15:24
They do cross site checks on the bug and feature request tags so it's very likely that they will see this. – Noctrine Aug 1 '11 at 15:36
@Noctrine♦ Seems like it hasn't been picked up, any way of transferring this? – Jonathan Connell Aug 2 '11 at 8:09
possible duplicate of Viewing badges, I see "post deleted or otherwise unavailable" – Cody Gray Aug 3 '11 at 10:42
@Cody Gray It's not a duplicate, because for one I asked first (xD) and because the other issue is now solved, but not this one. – 3nixios Aug 3 '11 at 12:03
@Jonathan: Yeah, I was aware of the dates, but since that one had gotten some attention and seemed to be resolved, this was the one I suggested as the duplicate. It was nothing personal. My real question was the second one you answered: has this issue been resolved? I figured they were related, and you just hadn't been back to check since. If that's not the case, ignore the close vote. – Cody Gray Aug 3 '11 at 12:14
I raised the other one, and confirm it has been fixed. Jonathan raised this one before me, and I confirm (by following the link) his has not been fixed. – Oddthinking Aug 3 '11 at 13:20

We found a very subtle bug in the student badge. We'll correct the badge reasons after the next deployment.

Update: The fix is deployed and all possible reasons have been synced up.
