Why was I not notified for earning a bronze badge, even the first time?
I'm doing a bit of badge hunting, and have got the Analytical and Excavator badges in SO. However I didn't get the notification-bar stating that they had been awarded - my Bronze badge number just incremented.
However when I got the Quorum badge I did get the notification-bar.
I'm using an up-to-date installation of Chrome if that's relevant.
