What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

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.
