I've only cast three votes on meta this week, and yet I was just awarded the Vox Populi badge. I see there was a spate of awarding this particular badge, but I haven't noticed a spate of meta voting.

  • Let's get this to the main meta if it's not already there... – bmike Feb 22 '12 at 23:06
  • I got it too, but didn't vote. – Martin Marconcini Feb 22 '12 at 23:08
  • @bmike there's no need to move this to MSO. Here is fine. – Rebecca Chernoff Feb 22 '12 at 23:09

We just deployed a change that affects the voting badges. This is why you see a number of these badges being awarded.

For more information about this change, you can see this answer.

Note that there was a bug with Vox Populi only that awarded too many of them (beyond the expected more for retroactive awards) and a fix has been deployed. The erroneous awards have been cleaned up.

    Woo and thanks. I haven't seen diamonds (other than our elected ones) here of late. Glad to have a speedy response :-) – bmike Feb 22 '12 at 23:12
