I happened to glance at my progress towards the various badges yesterday and noticed something peculiar. My current progress for Epic is marked as 2/50. Epic states that it is for reaching the 200 daily limit 50 times. However, Mortarboard is awarded for reaching the 200 daily limit, and I only have one.

Is Mortarboard awarded only once, am I missing a Mortarboard badge, or are Epic and Mortarboard calculated differently? (I don't remember hitting the 200 mark except once...)

Side Note: Congrats to Samuel for being the only user with Epic.

  • $\begingroup$ @Samuel Well, you could always slow down and let other people answer from time to time. :) $\endgroup$ – Frostfyre Feb 23 '16 at 18:38

Yes, Mortarboard is only awarded once.

This is the case with most non-question/answer badges, with the exception of a few like Socratic.

Epic and Legendary are also awarded only once.

  • $\begingroup$ Oh well. I was always looking forward to getting Mortarboard again. Curiously, I did hit the 200 mark twice, but I don't remember what I did late spring of last year to manage that... Ha. Just checked. That was back when I was more active in answering questions. $\endgroup$ – Frostfyre Feb 23 '16 at 14:10
