Sometimes I get a badge and do not get an inbox notification from it. How does this work? Is it a bug? I've tried to find for settings, but I didn't change anything and sometimes it shows me one and sometimes not so it shouldn't be a setting I think...

As a veteran user you are not notified for certain bronze badge AFAIK. –  Bart Oct 25 '12 at 14:01

No, this isn't a bug. You won't get notifications for some bronze badges. I think this is because some users get them quite often

It's not all bronze badges, just the "basic" ones. For example, you'll still get notified for a nice {question, answer}. –  Monica Cellio Oct 25 '12 at 16:33
