Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

I was looking through the badges on the stackapps site and came accross the Caucus badge. The description on the badge is as follows:

Visited an election during any phase of an active election and have enough reputation to cast a vote.

If you click on the election link it takes you to a Page Not Found error and contains a picture of Sean Connery in some messed up outfit. Anyway, does stackapps not hold elections?

Given the nature of StackApps I would have thought that elections were highly unlikely. – ChrisF Jun 18 '12 at 15:15
    
If that is the case then why is there a Caucus badge listed. – Linger Jun 18 '12 at 15:16
    
@todd because they may have one in the distant future – Manishearth Jun 18 '12 at 15:19

@ToddGrover - for the same reason that Stack Overflow has the Precognitive badge. – ChrisF Jun 18 '12 at 15:20
    
The link you listed is not the same as the election link in my question. The link the Caucus badge ahs is http://stackapps.com/election. – Linger Jun 18 '12 at 15:22
    
@ChrisF, just curious, what is that reason? Is it just to maintain consitency across the stack sites? – Linger Jun 18 '12 at 15:23

@ToddGrover - yes, plus it's a link to Area51 which trilogy users might no be aware of – ChrisF Jun 18 '12 at 15:26

Started to add an answer where you were forced to zoom into his chest until you could see the fur as a cactus with a comical badge, but I lost interest before I was done. – Won't Jun 18 '12 at 15:51
