I earned the announcer badge three times at once last night. Previous time I got it was over 1.5 year ago, and I earned those new badges on quite old questions, and I did not share a link recently (I cannot even remember I share them...). As far as I remember was the bronze level always at 25 unique IP addresses. Did something change on the StackExchange-side, or was there some serial clicker lurking through old forum posts of me?

SCreenshot of all my awards of the Announcer badge

A bug in calculating the Announcer, Booster, and Publicist badges for answers was fixed. This main meta post has the details.

  • Ah, thanks. That explains it indeed :)
