In Stack Overflow the Informed badge is awarded for reading the entire about page.
Why is the informed badge not awarded on Meta Stack Overflow? We have an about page here too.

    Perhaps by virtue of being on Meta, we consider one informed? – Oded Jul 12 '13 at 9:46

    Oh. And the meta about page is not really the same as the non-meta about page - it is the old and inferior kind. – Oded Jul 12 '13 at 9:47

There is an informed badge visible, but no one have been awarded it. I tried to be the first, but without any luck.

Maybe it's a bug and not a feature?!

    The badges are still displayed on all sites even if they're impossible to get, for example Precognitive is listed here and on some other sites that existed before Area51 came about. – PeterJ Jul 20 '14 at 8:18
  • @peterj Thanks. I didn't know that – Benny Skogberg Jul 20 '14 at 8:27
  • The Beta badge is visible too, but hard to get on MSO since it has never been in Beta. – Patrick Hofman Jul 20 '14 at 8:40
