I recently (28 hours ago) submitted one of StackOverflow's interesting questions to Hacker News and reddit, where it was featured on the front page all day. I used the personalized link the site gave me using the "Link" link.
That resulted in somewhere around 30,000 views of the question in less than a day. Several thousand of them were before the question was eventually migrated to http://programmers.stackexchange.com, and some tens of thousands afterwards.
The Publicist badge is awarded for referring 1000 unique IPs to a shared question. I haven't earned this badge on either SO or programmers.SE.
Is this a bug? Will I earn it on neither site since the question was moved? Or is this badge awarded by a process run less often than the other badge-awarding processes, and I haven't waited long enough?
Edit: jzd was right, I got the silver badge for that question. I managed to promote another question and quickly got the gold badge. I should be sending SOIS over 100,000 extra page views this month from several programming communities :)
