I was recently awarded both Excavator and a second Yearling

When viewing the excavator, I see something like this:

[Badge] Edited first post that was inactive for 6 months.
Basiclife earned this badge 1 time
4h ago Setting external application focus
[Link]Others with this badge[/Link]

but the yearling badge simply shows this:

[Badge] Active member for a year, earning at least 200 reputation. This badge can be awarded multiple times.
58455 Users earned this badge. Recently awarded to:

Where can I find out how many times I've been awarded Yearling (I'm guessing 2 as I've been active on SO for 2 years but I had to check my profile to see how long I'd been on the site)

I've tagged this support as it's likely a user error not a bug.

Look in your user profile, down at the bottom.

Yearling x 2

  • Thanks, that answers my initial question. That said, is there a reason the 2 badges are displayed differently by default?

    One badge is linked to posts. The other is not. @bas
