Hey Everyone,

Is there a page outlining the dates on which new badges were introduced to Stack Overflow?

You can already begin with this Link and search all iteration of the word badges.

EDIT: For the early history of badges, from the first badge in August 2008 until December 2009, you can go to this link.

In fairness, he/she was the quickest. As always, thanks. j – slotishtype Nov 26 '10 at 11:37
@slotishtype, no he was not (difference is 9 seconds), but no problem ;-). – Toon Krijthe Nov 26 '10 at 11:45
@slotishtype, as @Gamecat pointed I wasn't. Feel free to change your accepted answer if you wish. Also, I am a "he". :) – Eldros Nov 26 '10 at 12:11
Guys, the badges only go back to 22-05-2010 - the last introduction is the generalist badge....but badges are constantly being introduced....Maybe I could get the first introduction of a badge from the data explorer? – slotishtype Nov 26 '10 at 12:28
@slotishtype, I added a link which list the badges created in 2008 and 2009. Well in fact in the blog, there is link corresponding for the creation of each batch of badges. The only badges which don't have such a link are Mortarboard, Epic, and Legendary badges. – Eldros Nov 26 '10 at 12:50
cheers Eldros.......... – slotishtype Nov 26 '10 at 12:54

Not for the badges, but have a look at recent feature changes, it contains all feature changes including the badges.

If only I saw the question 10 seconds earlier. XD – Eldros Nov 26 '10 at 11:14
@Eldros, its only 9 seconds. But it isn't a big deal. As long as the answers are correct. – Toon Krijthe Nov 26 '10 at 11:16
that's why I said 10, then I would have been able to answer before you. But mostly, I'm joking, as you said, the principle is to give a right answer. – Eldros Nov 26 '10 at 11:18
