I was recently awarded a new badge but didn't receive notification for that in inbox. I observed that in the two recent badges that I was awarded.

Is this the default behavior on Meta or something is not working?


The following bronze badges notified to users:

other bronze badges are not notified to users.

  • It's more complicated than either revisions of this answer make it out to be. You are notified of certain bronze badges, until your reputation passes a certain threshold. Then you're considered to be a "veteran" user, probably not going to get super excited about some badges for basic usage of the site, and would rather not have these cluttering up your inbox. All documented here. – Cody Gray Jul 19 '13 at 12:35

    Insead of copying another answer it would have been better to vote/flag as duplicate. – juergen d Jul 19 '13 at 12:39
