I'm not complaining, but I think the Mortarboard badge is broken. I hit the rep cap yesterday and the day before, but didn't get the badge either time.

Is something busted or am I just being harebrained?

  • in your profile page / rep tab, check box "show removed posts" to make sure that none of yesterday upvotes was on a removed post (if this happened and badge award script run after removal, you'd be not eligible despite rep cap)

  • No @gnat. There was a hot network question that most of it came from. I didn't really want to link it here, but here it is. Definitely not removed. programmers.stackexchange.com/a/322724

    right, and I just re-checked your rep tab myself: it shows qualifying rep for two days, yesterday and 2 days ago. Really strange that badge wasn't awarded

  • Yeah. I don't really care about the badge, but it does seem odd.

Hmm, I'm showing that you already have the badge, earned March 4, 2015. Mortarboard, along with its successors, Epic and Legendary, are single-award badges.

To see your progress towards Epic and Legendary, you can track them in your user profile!

Also, nice answer about events :)
