The civic duty badge says it's granted for casting 300 votes but I got it after casting only 295 (here on meta).

Maybe it's counting other vote types...

  • Yeah, I noticed the same thing. I earned my Vox Populi badge one vote early, right after flagging something for moderator attention. It sounds like a related bug to me. Commented May 9, 2011 at 12:41
  • Or maybe the badge still counts votes against deleted items (because that's what used to be shown on the profile), while the votes cast display on your profile now only counts votes against non-deleted items...

The badge was counting votes on deleted posts, I just amended it so it consistent with the rest of the counts elsewhere.

Votes now only count on non-deleted posts (towards badges)

Badge will not be fixed retroactively, if you got it a bit early that is fine by me.

  • Yikes, someone could stop voting and forever have an invalid badge! :)

  • If anyone feels really strongly that we should take them away I can hack it
