I've suddenly earned several Curious, Inquisitive, and Socratic badges. I'm curious: Are these newly created badges?

Given that all of these ~2000 badges on the site have been awarded 4 hours ago, it would appear so.

Some explanation: Asking days badges, https://meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/262301/badges-for-habitually-asking-well-received-questions.

    $\begingroup$ Not that badges question are so important, but it seems to me that while these badges might be a good idea, the conditions of their attribution are way too lenient for our site. So basically, if you have five question (asked on different days) with a +1 score, and 4 questions with a -1 score, you get a badge ! That's weird. $\endgroup$ – Joël Jul 2 '14 at 23:46

    $\begingroup$ And I thought perhaps I was uniquely identified as Curious etc.! $\endgroup$ – Joseph O'Rourke Jul 3 '14 at 0:55

    $\begingroup$ @Joseph: But isn't Curious George curious as well? :-) $\endgroup$ – Asaf Karagila Jul 3 '14 at 1:39
  • $\begingroup$ I was quite tickled to receive my first curious badge, given my avatar :) $\endgroup$ – Tim Post Jul 3 '14 at 9:35

    $\begingroup$ I find the subtle sense of humour behind some of the badges quite amusing; when I was awarded the tumble weed badge, that made my day. I hope, that that kind of twinkle in the eye will not be given up. $\endgroup$ – Manfred Weis Jul 6 '14 at 10:22
