I got a blue popup asking me to post the question to FB or tweet it to earn a badge. I did, but nothing happened. What is it: a bug, a feature, or a missing carrot?

I'm not sure what the current wording of the popup is (I'm not getting presented with these anymore), but anyhow: you don't get Publicist just for posting a link. You only get the badge if the link is actually clicked on by people from 1000 unique IP addresses within 5 days and only if you've already got the Announcer and the Booster badge.

Related reading on the meta Meta:

  • Aha. so the carrot is worded wrongly. It should suggest Announcer and not Publicist.
