I recently got W00T (Enthusiast) and am now looking to Fanatic. I saw on another post that SO has been open for 11 months but no one has won Fanatic yet. Is it broken or just a coincidence?
The Fanatic badge was just unveiled and started tracking around 6/26/09. It'll be September before anybody gets it.
Today's the day.
Front page is stacked with them.
Enthusiast and Fanatic was recently added badges. And the time period started after they have been added.
Assuming that the count for the Fanatic badge started at the same time as the Woot! badge, I would expect the first round to be awarded on or around September 4th.
Ding Fanatic! (It's an mmo thing)
