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

Hopefully, this hasn't been reported yet, but I couldn't find it on meta so far. Today, I have received two "popular question" badges at the same time for the same question and they both seem to add up to my total badges. I strongly assume this is a bug and hopefully it can be reproduced somehow.

The question I am talking about can be found here.

This question came from our discussion, support, and feature requests site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Congrats for the badges :-) – Infinite Recursion Jul 14 '14 at 15:40
Awarded 5 minutes apart. It is weird... – Werner Jul 14 '14 at 15:45
This is probably more appropriate for Meta Stack Exchange now. – Ryan O'Hara Jul 14 '14 at 16:01
Okay, thank you first of all for the replies. And thank you for the congrats on the badges (= @minitech Do you think I should post it on Meta Stack Exchange now? I wasn't completely sure about this, since the bug (at least for me) specifically happened on SO – phil13131 Jul 14 '14 at 16:57
No, it’s okay. There are still plenty of bug reports here, but I think this (and most bugs) probably applies to all sites. – Ryan O'Hara Jul 14 '14 at 17:03
Okay, thank you for the answer. Hopefully, this will be fixed and I will lose my badge. – phil13131 Jul 14 '14 at 17:06
Looking forward this same behavior for "Great Question" badge :) – Glenn-- Jul 15 '14 at 6:57
That's the first time I hear someone saying "Hopefully ... I will lose my badge" :-) – Frank Schmitt Jul 15 '14 at 10:58
We're looking into the issue. In the meantime, I've manually deleted your duplicate badge. ;) – Haney Jul 15 '14 at 17:25
@Haney Thank you for the answer and thanks for deleting the badge (; No reason to be obsessed with badges. In the end we all (hopefully) want a well functioning site... – phil13131 Jul 15 '14 at 17:30
