I was awarded double yearling badges for both the meta and main Unix & Linux Stack Exchange site. (Note, the picture looks like 4, but the blue looks like gray.) Check my profile to see. It's not my first time getting yearling for either of those sites, so it's not a case of getting my first two years in one go or something like that. Interestingly I didn't get a double for sci-fi meta.

This isn't affecting anything (more badges are better!), but I thought it was important to report.

Double yearling badges

  • What makes you think you weren't eligible for two more? You've been a member there for over four years, and due to the reputation changes you jumped up to over 800 reputation. So you now have four of them on the Unix site. – animuson Nov 14 '19 at 15:37

    It's not intuitively obvious unless you're aware of the recalc issue. Receiving multiple awards from previous years was a bit jarring to me, too. – Robert Cartaino Nov 14 '19 at 15:48
  • @Cartaino I understand now. I guess I thought you got a yearling for every year so long as you had at least 200, but it sounds like it's for each year and each 200 combined, and the rep change made me eligible for my 4 years because before I must have had between 400 and 599. – Captain Man Nov 14 '19 at 16:03
