I have 2 questions with over 10k views (one with 10k and the other with over 40k) but have only received the gold popular question badge once.

    $\begingroup$ Probably should also mention that those badges are awarded every so often (nightly or weekly, I forget which), so you won't get the badge the instant you get the 10000th view, but some hours or days later. $\endgroup$

1 Answer 1


Because the second one has only 9,945, 55 short of the 10,000 needed.

Your profile shows "10k" because the numbers there are rounded, not truncated.
