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

I just noticed in the "recent badges" section on SO that a few users earned a "C++" and "Java" badge but those badges are not listed on the "Badges" page (which is supposed to show all badges possible. I'm sure that other languages have badges as well, but it leads to the question of what other badges are available that aren't actually listed?

There are "general" and "tags" tabs in the upper-right of the badges page. "C++" and "Java" badges will be listed with the tags.

dang...didn't even see those tabs! – Scott Dorman Aug 15 '09 at 14:56
Aww, beat me by a couple of seconds ( possibly less ). +1 for you. – Brad Gilbert Aug 15 '09 at 14:59
It took me at least a month to figure out why all the tag badges had disappeared from the badges page. It's not the most visible place to put tabs, I guess. – mmyers Aug 15 '09 at 16:32
It took me a while to find it too. I think your eye gets drawn to the left on that page, making the tabs hard to see. – Bill the Lizard Aug 15 '09 at 19:09

You need to click "Tags" On SO, Meta, SU, or SF

+1 for freehand circles – Nathan Koop Dec 22 '09 at 20:31

Those particular badges are created on Demand, they don't exist until someone earns the badge.

Since they aren't like the other badges, they get their own tab.
