What's the point of having a Precognitive badge on Area 51 itself, since no one could have earned it?
It's on Stack Overflow to make people aware of Area 51, as mentioned here, but this reason wouldn't apply if you're already on Area 51.

Which reason? He gave three:
The fact is, there is no real incentive for a user to use area51, even if they've seen it--till they see the precognitive badge somewhere. Agreed that a user will most probably have already started doing stuff in area51 before they check out the badges, but I see no pressing reason to remove it.
