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

The other day I got the Popular question badge, but as you can see I don't have any question with 1,000 views.

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

@Bozho: I couldn't pick an accurate close reason, so I went with what I thought was closest. I see you picked "noise or pointless" which would have just seemed rude coming from someone else. :) – Bill the Lizard May 19 '10 at 12:41
@Bill How is this too localized? This mistake could happen to anyone who gets the popular badge, and is not looking for the "1k" marker. Granted, it's not that likely, but it IS StackExchange related, and it IS applicable to other users who get the badge. – devinb May 19 '10 at 13:19
@devinb: @Bozho asked for this to be closed (via moderator flag). I picked what I thought was the closest reason. I agree that it doesn't quite fit in the "too localized" category, but there's not really a good fit. Do you think it should just stay open? @Bozho, would you have any objections to keeping this question around? – Bill the Lizard May 19 '10 at 13:29
@Bill I TOTALLY missed that the vote to close came from him. I apologize. – devinb May 19 '10 at 13:46
@devinb: No worries. – Bill the Lizard May 19 '10 at 14:46
@Bill the Lizard - no problem, let it stay :) – Bozho May 21 '10 at 7:55

damn.. sorry.. I don't know why I expected 1,000 rather than 1k. And I expected other questions to have gained more :) – Bozho May 19 '10 at 12:33
Ah yeah, it happens sometimes, and I think I saw some similar reports like yours :-) – YOU May 19 '10 at 12:34
