For years, whenever I've joined a new site, I've seen a +100 in green in the top bar on the achievement dropdown. I've always thought that this was part of the system's design. I've never been annoyed by it, but I can imagine quite a few would be.
Today, after searching for something completely unrelated, I've stumbled upon this post which is a feature request asking for this notification in the top bar to be removed. That request was implemented in December 2014 (a staff member tagged it as completed and didn't leave any other note). Since then, it was de-implemented at some point in 2015-2017.
Was the de-implementation intentional, and if so, why was it de-implemented? Also, regardless of it being intentional, is the current behavior preferred by the team, and if so, why?
(Note: this is not a request to go back to the prior behavior. This post doesn't express any opinion as to whether or not it should be present - it just asks neutrally about the feature.)
