Similar to Not getting reputation change notifications after opting for Winter Bash, but pertaining to achievement notifications. I've verified that I earned several Bronze badges yesterday (17 December 2015) which have not yet appeared in notification; the last badge that did appear was my Reviewer badge on SO, which I earned just before I opted in to Winter Bash.

I am getting reputation-change notifications, so this must be a different bug.

  • Review did, but Scholar and Commentator did not. Screen shot as soon as I figure it out. Dec 18, 2015 at 21:57
  • No, now there's no need in the screen - not a bug.

The fact the bronze badges like Scholar or Commentator not appearing in the dropdown isn't a bug, but a feature - many bronze badges are considered insignficant (fair enough - do you think Student is a signficant achievement), and not included in the dropdown except the very first time you get them as a complete newbie to the whole SE network.

This doesn't happen with all the bronze badges - the ones like Nice answer/question will be included in the dropdown. As for the silver and gold badges - you always get notified of them.

(Btw - not related to winterbash)

  • Ah - wasn't aware of that. Still, even though they may not have been significant to anyone else, no-one else should be getting my notifications anyway... ;) Anyway, thanks for the quick answer. Dec 18, 2015 at 22:05
