SuperUser just notified me that I earned the Nice Answer badge and one other badge and suggested I'd visit my profile.

Curious about what the other badge could possibly be, I complied, but only the Nice Answer badge were there.

It took me a few minutes to figure out that I had actually earned the Nice Answer badge twice.

To prevent others from facepalming like I did, I'm suggesting the following:

  1. Show a multiplier i the activity tab when the same badge is earned multiple times in the same instant.

    Like this:


    and / or

  2. Change the notification to You have earned the Nice Answer badge twice / thrice / N times.

...wow, not many times you get to see an edge case bug like this. This reminds me of when edits used to be collapsed. I would think the activity tab should show it on two separate lines, not collapse them. – Grace Note Dec 21 '11 at 21:17
Since it appears on separate lines when entering badges (as @Mr.Wizard pointed out), I guess this would be the way to go. – Dennis Dec 21 '11 at 21:31

It does appear twice in your activity tab: (badges tab image link).

You're right, I see the problem now:

You're right. When entering badges, it does appear twice. But it doesn't when you are browsing all. – Dennis Dec 21 '11 at 21:30
I think that the behavior on "all" on the activity should probably match that of just badges. – Grace Note Dec 21 '11 at 21:33
