What is the easiest way to determine the date on which I received a specific badge?

Use the "recent activity" data, accessed with the little orange (or grey) envelope at the top of the page, then switch to the "badges" tab. It lists the day you received each badge. (You can adjust the exact date range by tweaking the URL, so as to hone in on a specific time period you are interested in.)

  • That's a nice solution! Thanks. Apr 26, 2010 at 14:57
  • This used to be correct, but became obsolete months ago with the death of the envelope.

What voyager said, and then the data dump if you really want to know.

Excerpt from "anatomy of a data dump":

+--- badges.xml
|     - Id
|     - UserId, e.g.: "420"
|     - Name, e.g.: "Teacher" 
|     - Date, e.g.: "2008-09-15T08:55:03.923" 

The new interface makes it a lot easier, just go to your Profile -> Recent Activity -> Badges.

Check: http://screencast.com/t/R0X9oFwjI


If it was recently awarded, and depending on your activity, you can see them at your profile. Otherwise I guess you are out of luck.
