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

Just got the Civic Duty badge at 299 votes, is that intentional? Does it start counting at zero?

This is on SO btw.

When the badge was awarded to you, you had voted on 300 active posts - then one of the posts was deleted, taking your total down to 299.
