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

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.
