Mark which badges are capable of being won > 1 time
List of all badges with full descriptions

In the Badges page, I find nothing that lets me know that a badge can be awarded multiple times.

I can see that I can click on badges individually to see if they can be awarded multiple times, but a simple icon or sentence in the badge list would make all the difference.

If you click through to each individual badge, it will tell you.

Archaeologist: only once


Favorite Question: multiple times

A quicker way is to look through List of all badges with full descriptions.

Mortarboard, in particular, is a one-time-only badge. But if you can reach 200 reputation on fifty separate occasions, you'll be Epic. For 150 days, you'll be Legendary.

IMHO it should be placed in the badges page, so everything would be in the same place, a nice icon could be the answer... I'm not seeing anyone clicking in all badges just to see if they can be awarded multiple times :) – balexandre Aug 30 '11 at 16:36
@balexandre: Then you might [feature-request] it. – mmyers Aug 30 '11 at 16:39
