Is the Yearling badge meant to be awarded every year to active users?

This behavior seems...odd. Certainly if we take "yearling" literally.

    You mean if they post one bad answer they should be shot behind a curtain out on the course where the railbirds are eating their stubs?

    I'm sure it didn't use to say "This badge can be awarded multiple times.". Must be a recent change, perhaps it's to encourage people to stick around.

  • It's just a worthless silver. 1/year is not a big deal in my opinion. Why not?

    @Popular, a duplicate of a question asked months after mine? My DeLorean is in the shop.

    @JXG, yeah, it's unusual, but that one has a moderator red tag and a Jeff Atwood answer, so I figured it was a special case. I don't care enough about it to follow up at this point, though.

Looks like it. Maybe when you get 10 it'll convert into the Decader badge.

  • "Decadeling"? "Yeartenling"? Aug 25, 2017 at 19:22
  • "Decader" is a reference to the book Anathem by Neal Stephenson.
