I have seen one user and I saw he has a golden badge, as this is more rare I wanted to see how he got it, or what for. But I couldn't find out. Is there a way to do this ?

UPDATE: On Mouse Over I don't see that.

But guess what I found the Badges Section at the bottom of the stats :D Thanks

Click the user - and look in the 'Badges' section? :)

EDIT: On mouse over you get to see why he got the badge.

While some badges may be awarded for a particular question or answer, a lot are very general so you can't get more precise than "been here for a year" in the mouseover.
