Hopefully, this hasn't been reported yet, but I couldn't find it on meta so far. Today, I have received two "popular question" badges at the same time for the same question and they both seem to add up to my total badges. I strongly assume this is a bug and hopefully it can be reproduced somehow.

The question I am talking about can be found here.

    This is probably more appropriate for Meta Stack Exchange now. – Ry- Jul 14 '14 at 16:01
  • Okay, thank you first of all for the replies. And thank you for the congrats on the badges (= @minitech Do you think I should post it on Meta Stack Exchange now? I wasn't completely sure about this, since the bug (at least for me) specifically happened on SO – phil13131 Jul 14 '14 at 16:57

    No, it’s okay. There are still plenty of bug reports here, but I think this (and most bugs) probably applies to all sites. – Ry- Jul 14 '14 at 17:03
  • Okay, thank you for the answer. Hopefully, this will be fixed and I will lose my badge. – phil13131 Jul 14 '14 at 17:06

    That's the first time I hear someone saying "Hopefully ... I will lose my badge" :-) – Frank Schmitt Jul 15 '14 at 10:58

    We're looking into the issue. In the meantime, I've manually deleted your duplicate badge. ;) – Haney Jul 15 '14 at 17:25
  • @Haney Thank you for the answer and thanks for deleting the badge (; No reason to be obsessed with badges. In the end we all (hopefully) want a well functioning site... – phil13131 Jul 15 '14 at 17:30
