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

Today I noticed that almost all awarded badges visible in the Recent Badges list are Enlightened badges:


How is this possible? Were other users unable to get any other badges during this time? Do I perhaps not understand something about the Recent Badges list?

Missing about something to understand don't lead down vote :( .I unable to find any thing in search. – Shree Mar 18 '13 at 15:16
I think it's the language barrier. The hard statement which you made in the title "Other badges are dead" is completely untrue. Try to ask a question about the observation instead of making a hard statement based on an ungrounded assumption, e.g. "Why do I see only [enlightenend] in list of recent badges and not other badges?", along with the [support] tag instead of [discussion]. – BalusC Mar 18 '13 at 15:19
@Chichiray Thanks for suggestion I care about this for next question. – Shree Mar 18 '13 at 15:25
In the age of Aquarius, we should all be enlightened by now. – Toon Krijthe Mar 18 '13 at 15:49
In Meta people are VERY easy on the downvote arrow don't take it hard. In this specific case guess the downvotes are from those thinking it's trivial knowledge. – Shadow Wizard Mar 18 '13 at 16:03

Badges are awarded in batches. You simply see the result of a batch focused on Enlightened badges.

Wait a while for another batch process to award a different set of badges. I see Notable Question is currently being handed out, for example.
