I was looking through the badges on the stackapps site and came accross the Caucus badge. The description on the badge is as follows:

Visited an election during any phase of an active election and have enough reputation to cast a vote.

If you click on the election link it takes you to a Page Not Found error and contains a picture of Sean Connery in some messed up outfit. Anyway, does stackapps not hold elections?

    Given the nature of StackApps I would have thought that elections were highly unlikely.

  • If that is the case then why is there a Caucus badge listed.

  • @todd because they may have one in the distant future Jun 18, 2012 at 15:19

    @ToddGrover - for the same reason that Stack Overflow has the Precognitive badge.

  • The link you listed is not the same as the election link in my question. The link the Caucus badge ahs is http://stackapps.com/election.

  • @ChrisF, just curious, what is that reason? Is it just to maintain consitency across the stack sites?

    Started to add an answer where you were forced to zoom into his chest until you could see the fur as a cactus with a comical badge, but I lost interest before I was done.
