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.
