Anyone else keep getting notifications on getting badges repeatedly?

Norion said:

Yep, it's been happening for a while now.

Yes, started about a week ago with my latest badge.

What is the actual badge you guys are getting notified about?

For me the ride into the sunset one.

For me it's the WANTED badge. Just got yet another two (I always seem to get two notifications at once) notifications for it. And I checked the page when I got it first a couple days ago, but still get notifications at random.



I'll step out of the shadows for a moment to try to help people with the badges issue, which I also experienced for a few days recently.

After clicking on the "new Badge(s) has/have been earned" notification, you'll be linked to your Badges page, where a dialog will appear in the upper left corner, partially hidding your avatar. There will be as new messages on that dialog box as new badges notifications, and the only thing you need to do to stop getting notifications (it worked for me, at least) is clicking on the 'x' for each one of those messages. Simple, but effective.

I don't know if this will solve everyone's problems with badges, but I post it here in case it's useful to someone.



I have periods of social disconnection, it's a part of me that I need and keenly embrace. I'll still log in and read news and threads during those times, but I won't be (very) active on the site, so I apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause (late answers, bumps or the like).

Also...

Please, feel free to correct my English.

YES!!!!!!

This is EXACTLY what needs to be done - I couldn't remember what it was, that actually cleared that flag! But yes, that notification in the upper left will display each badge that was earned and each one needs to be dismissed. Thank you for this!!!!!!

Edit: There might be an issue with the notification appearing on mobile - if you are browsing on mobile and do not see the notification, please let me know...

I have been testing this issue for the past few days to try and figure out any other useful data for others. Like Verter said, closing the dialog box will prevent more notifications from showing up. 

Another way of seeing the block that needs to be closed is by pressing "HOME" on the top bar of the site. then you should be able to see something like this:

All you need to do now is click the (Close) button and the box will disappear.

However, something strange did happen to me while testing this out. I got 2 badges on the same day, but after waiting for an extra day and getting the notifications again, I was only prompted with one of these close messages, and I was only awarded one Badge. There seems to be another badge missing.

By my best calculations, the badge missing is this one:

It's fixed now so now I won't need to click on my notifications every day for the same thing. A tiny minor annoyance has been resolved!



Keep getting spammed with notification badges as well. And do not get the extra notification after clicking on it.

Also my points have frozen and my posts no longer add to it.

I just saw that my list of subscribed threads is overflowing, so I wanted to cut down a bit. Specifically, I wanted to remove the old COMG! thread from Boutros, which is locked. And apparently, you can't remove locked threads from your subscriptions anymore - even though nothing will get added there anymore. Any way to get around this?
