Not getting "Welcome" badge even though I got many likes on my posts

If you check my stats, it says I’ve received approximately 15+ likes on my replies & topics. The thing is, you earn the “Welcome” once you have at least 1 like on a post. If you check my badges, I don’t have the badge!

This started just when I realized it. I didn’t have the “Welcome” badge even if I was a member for about a month now.

Here are some screenshots:

Help would be greatly appreciated.


But, yea you still didn’t recieved it. Have you tried logging out and logging in?

1 Like

This is intended. All your posts with Likes were in private categories (not visible when logged out).

Discourse badges are explicitly only awarded for public post content.

I’ve just dropped a Like on your topic here, so you should get the badge soon since #forum-help:forum-bugs is public. :wink:


I still didn’t get the badge… :frowning:

It’s just a badge bro, i dont think it limits your way of interacting on here


I dropped you a like on one of your other posts. It looks like you have the badge now!


Thank you! I finally got the badge :sweat_smile:
