Do I need to visit all of the SE sites everyday that I want to obtain the Enthusiast, consecutive days badge for? Or does interacting with just one count for all of them?

    Visiting only one site wouldn't be enthousiastic or fanatic at all. – Toon Krijthe Dec 31 '12 at 18:44
  • so visiting the same page on that same site will work? for example, if I write a script that visits this everyday for 30 days... meta.stackexchange.com/questions/160989/… – jth41 Dec 31 '12 at 19:08

    If you think writing a script to achieve a badge makes you an Enthusiast, then by all means go for it. Don't be surprised if you get banned for running an unauthorized script, though. – ale Dec 31 '12 at 19:41

    @ÄlËverett not sure anyone pays attention, definitely not sporting though! – Rory Dec 31 '12 at 19:54

You have to visit each one separately.

    @meta.michael Not if you don't care about those meaningless badges and just go to the site whenever you want to ask/answer questions. – Servy Dec 31 '12 at 19:00
  • @Servy I only cared when I first joined and desperately wanted my first gold badge. I'm currently sitting on 695 consecutive days at SO, so it really isn't an issue for me anymore :) (unless they start to offer some rare earth platinum ultra-fanatic for hitting 1000) – Michael Berkowski Dec 31 '12 at 19:05
  • ...but anyway, meaningless badges which drive traffic and encourage users to visit the sites when they otherwise might not are a good thing. – Michael Berkowski Dec 31 '12 at 19:15

Just based on the wording of your question, I wanted to clarify... the Enthusiast badge is separate for each site. If you visit Stack Overflow for 30 straight days you get the badge for Stack Overflow. Then if you visit Unix & Linux.SE for 30 straight days, you get the badge for that site. The badges are unique to each site.

If someone visited every SE site for 30 straight days, they either deserve a badge or a psychiatrist.

    funny, but a comment, not an answer. – jcolebrand Dec 31 '12 at 19:25

No, Badges/Tags/Reputation are separate for separate sites.
