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

There are some badges in stackoverflow, which can be awarded multiple times, like Notable Question. Is there any option to identify users having a highest number specific badge? I mean suppose in the case of Notable Question badge, is there an option to identify the person (or persons) having HIGHEST number of that badge? Is this possible?

data query challenged dropped ... who will accept it?? – Adam Rackis Aug 17 '12 at 16:08
Just a guess at a guy with 5934 badge. – Bo Persson Aug 17 '12 at 16:09
I don't meant the complete number of badges, but the guy with the highest number of a specific badge, like notable question badge, that can be awarded multiple times. – blasteralfred Ψ Aug 17 '12 at 16:10
Maybe it isn't a guy... – Toon Krijthe Aug 17 '12 at 16:11

Note that you're results won't be 100% up to date. See here: Why are my SEDE results inaccurate/obsolete/incorrect/outdated?

Wow. Jon Skeet has earned more Nice Answer badges in the time since the SEDE results were last updated than I've earned total badges ever. – Adam Rackis Aug 17 '12 at 16:23

@AdamRackis If it makes you feel any better, Jon skeet has more badges than I have reputation points on Stack Overflow. – jadarnel27 Aug 17 '12 at 16:25
