Can I get multiple Fanatic/Enthusiast badges?

I don't really care if I can or not, I'm just curious... after all we are talking about a colored dot on a computer screen :)

They're awarded only once. See also list of all badges with full descriptions.


  • silver; awarded once; same family as Fanatic (gold)



  • gold; awarded once; same family as Enthusiast (silver)

If a badge can be awarded multiple times, it would be explicitly mentioned like that on the badge page.

Out of those badges that value "doing something repeatedly", Socratic is the only one that gets awarded multiple times.

But of course, you can collect "the same" badge on multiple different communities on the stack exchange network. Not really useful, but well, decide for your own.

    Actually, getting multiple Fanatic badges is rather easy.

    @Glorfindel I thought so. But there is no point in cheating for badges that can acquired by simple cheating. As we say here in Swabia: "if it costs nothing, it is probably worth nothing".
