    In short: yes it means it's no longer possible to earn this badge same way we can't earn the Beta badge on Stack Overflow or any other graduated site. – ShaWiz Jan 29 '14 at 13:42

Yes, it does.

The list of all badges with full descriptions says:

As of June 2013, this badge is no longer awarded due to the FAQ being changed to the Help Center all across the network. Those who earned it previously get to keep it.
