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 didn't get the badge notification for the Custodian badge:

enter image description here

I don't mind not getting notified for a Suggested Edit I accepted months ago. But my First Post reviewed badge was awarded because of a review I just did few minutes ago and I was totally expecting to get notified.

Is this supposed to happen?

Note: people are being notified about this badge in StackOverflow

I didn't get any notification for my "Custodian" badges either (but got notifications for "Reviewer" and "Steward"). Could be that too many get them to send out all the notifications immediately. – Daniel Fischer Sep 22 '12 at 1:22
I didn't get any notification for the Custodian badge either. I guess reputation comes into play. – kiamlaluno Sep 22 '12 at 1:56
I just got notified on both meta and SO... not sure whether I deserve them or not but badges are always good. – M.Babcock Sep 22 '12 at 4:36

This was also asked on Programmers, I'll copy my answer here for reference:

Most of the bronze badges don't notify users who are considered "veterans" of the network, which is (loosely) defined as having accounts on multiple non-meta sites.

The rationale is that getting a notification every time you join a new site and, say, downvote gets a tad annoying after a while.

Custodian, being one of the "you did one thing"-bronze badges is one of those who's notifications are suppressed.
