Formerly List of all badges with full descriptions.
- What are badge name's requirements?
- Why didn't I get badge name (right now)?
- Which badges can I earn multiple times?
Note: Some badges are awarded based on score. The term score means the total number of upvotes minus the total number of downvotes.
Any badge with a *** next to it is one of 20 badges that count towards the candidate score displayed on a moderator candidate in an election. The candidate score is a total of 40 points: the first 20 are awarded based on the user's rep divided by 1000 and rounded down; the second 20 represents the total number of unique badges earned of the 20 that count. Note that if the same badge is earned multiple times, it will only count once towards the candidate score.
Any badge with a "(retired)" next to it is no longer awarded, but is retained by users who previously earned them. See this answer for more info on what it means for a badge to be retired.
