This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


Retired here means that the badge is no longer awarded. It has been replaced by the Informed badge, which is given when the entire Tour page has been read.

This occurred when the FAQ was replaced with the help center and it no longer made sense to distribute the badge.
