By current count I have 3 silver and 4 bronze badges. This is a lot less than I had before. Do they just turn up in dribs and drabs over 24-48 hours, or what?

Not that I'm driven by badges, but I'm curious to know how it works.

  • It might take a while since they need to be recalculated. On the other hand, you can enjoy each notification again! – François G. Dorais Jun 25 '13 at 3:56
  • Or lack thereof, if the old badge has no analogue... :-) – David Roberts Jun 25 '13 at 3:57

    I feel sorry for Joel, who will have his inbox spammed with badge notifications for days... – David Roberts Jun 25 '13 at 3:57

I think you're seeing your Meta badges. If you look from a regular MO page, you should have all your old badges.

Edit: Yep, I see 2 gold, 20 silver, and 58 bronze on your MO user page. That enough for you? :)

  • Ah, forgot about that system. Problem solved. – David Roberts Jun 25 '13 at 4:00
  • I can't even accept your answer yet - need to get used to the computer nanny telling me what I can't do now. :-S – David Roberts Jun 25 '13 at 4:00
