I like badges, but I don't think I should have been given a Yearling badge yet... I've only been on SO for 49 days!

I saw a comment on another post saying that a cookie may have been to blame. I may have visited SO over a year ago as a guest, but I certainly didn't create an account back then!

Ha, I just wrote a long comment, clicked on your link and saw that I was the person you're referring to. So... no further comment. – Pops Sep 29 '10 at 15:20

Your profile says you've been a member for 1 year and you have more than 200 points so you qualify.

It could be that when you visited Stack Overflow before you did create an account.

It seems I'm confusing "Member for" with "Visited". I must be blind!! I guess I must have created an account back then... – BG100 Sep 29 '10 at 15:22
