Lookie at Sneakers O'Toole's account (an easter egg test account btw)

You'll notice that he has the yearling badge, yet the yearling badge states "Active member for a year earning at least 200 reputation". He currently only has a reputation of 101 and he has never gotten any reputation from questions or answers. Though he may be considered active since he was seen a few months ago logged in.

Is this just because the user is so old or is this an actual bug in the Yearling Badge checking?

Yearling used to require a mere 100 rep, until I raised a massive amount of heck about it. There's a window of four months or so between when Sneakers was around for a year and when Jeff raised the bar.

So, you could say this is by Popular Demand.
