I signed into SO today to find the magical orange-overseer alerting me that I've won a new badge called "Enthusiast." I was pretty excited, and rushed to my profile to check it out - well, there's "Woot," which is new for me. But I wasn't able to find "Enthusiast." Is this a mix-up with names, since you are considered an "enthusiast" if you are awarded "woot"?

Woot (woot.com) is sponsoring the enthusiast badge for the time being, hence the rename. I recommend that you read the blog for more details.

I knew that Woot! was responsible for a new badge, but plastering a big "Woot" label on it and still calling it "Enthusiast" is confusing. Oh well, thanks for the clarity. – Sampson Jul 4 '09 at 14:57
I agree. This just happened to me, and I was extremely confused... – kanamekun Oct 27 '09 at 15:54

Ah... Was about to post a question about Enthusiast badge. It's a WOOT!

+1 for the freeness of that circle. – Ólafur Waage Nov 13 '09 at 14:24
-1 for using shadows – juanformoso Nov 13 '09 at 15:10
DXXn! I forgot to turn off the shadow effect. – o.k.w Nov 14 '09 at 4:33

Congratulations, next up...the Fanatic badge!

Apparently only 70 days to go :) Well, that is assuming my enthusiast-days rollover into my fanatic-days. – Sampson Jul 4 '09 at 15:41
Is there a way we can find out how many days in a row we've visited? At one time, a moderator told me that I started a fresh run on April 9th, so I have tried very hard to make sure to log in everyday since, but I'm not sure if this worked out... Moderator help? SU <- – nicorellius May 9 '10 at 0:30
Go to your profile page and it should say visited for x days y consecutive. If you click on that you'll see a calendar showing exactly which days. – Robert Longson Jan 17 at 6:29
