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

Per-site meta notifications don't ask you to see your profile

I suspect this might be a dupe but I can't seem to find a relevant post.

I just notices that the notification for the "Yearling" badge appears twice in slightly different incarnations.

Yes, I heard you the first time

Looking at past notifications, the same thing happened when I got the "Yearling" badge for SuperUser, but not for Area51.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

@TimStone that address why the first instance looks different but does not mention a duplicate notifications. – Shawn Chin Oct 2 '12 at 17:13
They're technically different badges (although I don't know how the awarding criteria works for the one on the per-site meta), so that seems correct. – Tim Stone Oct 2 '12 at 17:15
Ahh... ok. Makes sense. – Shawn Chin Oct 2 '12 at 17:16
That's not a dupe IMO, voting to reopen. – Shadow Wizard Dec 24 '14 at 9:05

You get a meta yearling badge and a yearling badge for the main site.

This is what you're seeing, notice that the logos are slightly different (one color, the other monochrome)

That makes sense. Thanks. – Shawn Chin Oct 2 '12 at 17:16
It would be nice if the notification made that clearer. – Keith Thompson Oct 12 '12 at 19:06
