I'm actively participating in the private beta of, and I recently earned the Enlightened badge. (Woot!) I checked to see who else had earned it by going to At the time I'm writing, it reports that

3 Users earned this badge. Recently awarded to:

6h ago How can I make an enumerate list start at something other than 1 in LaTeX? — ShreevatsaR 49629

8h ago How to wrap text around a figure? — vanden 427114

12h ago \eqnarray vs \align — ShreevatsaR 49629

Since the badge has been awarded 3 times, but only to 2 users, the text seems wrong. Ought it not say either:

This badge has been awarded 3 times


This badge has been awarded 3 times to a total of 2 users?
