One of my answers on Ask Ubuntu meta reached the lofty heights of 25 upvotes and the relevant badge was duly awarded. However, I seem to keep getting the notifications:

achievements menu showing triplicate notification

Note that only the notification was received in triplicate. The badge was only awarded once.

  • Funny thing is that it does not show in the Good answer badge page. Aug 23, 2016 at 10:21
  • @fedorqui yeah, I noticed that after posting this and left a comment to that effect on the dupe. I have now received yet another notification, but no badge. I'm starting to think there's something like if(!$badgeAwarded){awardBadge(); notifyUser} and there's a bug in awardBadge so it's stuck in a loop.

  • It really looks like that. I hope they solve this fast, imagine they run out of metal and cannot award anything for the rest of the year :-D Aug 23, 2016 at 10:31
  • @fedorqui thing is, nothing has been awarded. They were shooting blanks for three hours. Aug 23, 2016 at 12:25
  • @ShadowWizard yep, I have read the main post. Aug 23, 2016 at 12:51
