I've done two bounties for my own questions (1 and 2). If you go to my Promoter badge home page then you see a description:

Promoter First bounty you offered on your own question.

developer earned this badge 1 time

I suppose it to be a bug because it should either list only the first bounty and doesn't show the number of times or list all the bounties. I think the description should be corrected. "Earned this badge 1 time" text should be removed for badges you can only get once.

You can only earn that badge once. So it is correct in saying you only earned it one time. It's not showing only the number of times you earned it, it's showing what question you earned it for.

Compare to the editor badge. The badge page is showing what question was the first one I edited, and thus, what question earned me the badge.

  • Combining your point on that, I can understand this a bit more. Thanks, @There!

    I understand the correctness. I mean that it looks like "developer earned this badge N times", where N=1
