In the following image:

should it be badges earned today instead of earned today ? Don't you think so?

Couldn't fabricate a better excuse to show us your Pundit badge? :-) – Rick Sladkey May 20 '11 at 6:26
@Rick: I'm not advertising my badges. – Harry Joy May 20 '11 at 6:27
Just teasing. Your premise is very weak though. – Rick Sladkey May 20 '11 at 6:33

It's quite clear these are badges, no need to waste an space in that panel.

Mat is right, it's clear that this is about badges, but "today" is rather misleading: Unless this bug report of mine is completed, it should read "earned in the last 24 hours" as suggested by Grace Note. (To be clear, I'm not talking about time zones here: even if I got a badge yesterday 22:00 UTC, today it'll still show up as "earned today".)

The behavior here is consistent with a "day" everywhere else on the site. It would be even more confusing to change just this. – Cody Gray May 20 '11 at 10:21
@Cody: The behaviour is not consistent. I had a "favorite" change 17 hours ago, but in the dropdown it says "0" under "today". So the other instance of today in the dropdown (with 4 entries!) has a different meaning. This is confusing, isn't it? – Hendrik Vogt May 20 '11 at 10:39
