I crossed 30 consecutive days 2 days ago (today is 32nd) but I didn't get an Enthusiast badge this time around.

BTW, I did change my openid this week but as per this question answered by Jeff that should make no difference.

So, is the enthusiast badge like a one time thing?


Should I expect to get it everytime I have 30 consecutive days?

If it is the latter, then "Hand over the badge p##k"? :-) :-) PS: I am feeling lucky today.

Enthusiast -- Visited the site each day for 30 consecutive days.

Badges that can be awarded multiple times will say in its description "this badge can be awarded multiple times." Simple, no?

actually it is not simple / clear atleast to me. None of the descriptions seem to explitly mention "this badge can be awarded multiple times" at – InSane Nov 3 '10 at 3:14
@InSane the individual badge pages do explicitly mention it, such as If it doesn't mention it on the page then it's not a bade you can earn more than once. – Corey Nov 3 '10 at 3:25

@InSane: Pick a time when you aren't going to go on any vacations away from internet connectivity. Know when midnight UTC is where you live. For me, it was 6 PM on standard time, 7 when on daylight saving. That made it feasible to skip a whole Saturday if needed: log in at 7:30 Friday and 5 PM Sunday and I still made progress. – David Thornley Nov 3 '10 at 13:39
@David - Thanks! That is an excellent point :-) I will note the UTC time difference. – InSane Nov 4 '10 at 8:57
