Additional Badge Requirements?

Are there a additional requirements for some of the badges that is not described in their badge descriptions?

For example, the First Reaction badge. I’ve used reactions about a dozen times and hadn’t received the badge.

Another one, the Promoter badge. I invited one person (so far) and in my activities it says, they accepted the invitation. Is there something missing that I didn’t get the badge?

One more, the Thank you badge. With all the likes I’ve given and received, I would have thought this one would be in the bag also.

Not a big deal, but I wax just curious about this. The badges are a fun aspect of the forum, but it just doesn’t seem like they are all working properly. Or is it that there is more needed to be done to get the badge than what has been described in their descriptions.

Sometime it takes the “badge crawler” a while to do its analysis and award a fresh round of badges based on criteria met. So it could just be a delay.

The Reaction badge was just recently re-enabled, so there might be more going on with that.

I’ve never gotten any of the external invite badges to unlock, but other folks have, so it could just be me.

Thanks. Good to know.

To see what’s involved in being a “Regular”, you have to dig through the Discourse website.

It looks like you already have the First Reaction and Promoter badges.

So it was most likely the system delay in the badge crawler, as they didn’t have those badges when I checked earlier.

Yep. Looks like I just got them. @SandyFrank was correct, there was a delay. Thanks for the response.

Just trying something out. :+1:
