Which badges do not cause a notification for experienced users?

Today i was awarded with the Suffrage and Vox Populi badges. 40 minutes after reaching the 40 votes, i received the You've earned the "Vox Populi" badge in the Notification area (top left corner). But I haven't received the Suffrage notification. Why? is this a bug?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


No, some bronze badges are not shown in the notifications area, for users that are considered "experienced".

If you have more than one account on the Stack Exchange network (associated) then you won't be notified of the 'easy' bronze badges anymore. See Prevent the 'Notification Fiesta'.

You still get notified for Nice Question / Answer, even experienced users like those still. :-)
