Looks like the badge count has now dropped from 385 to 383. If we are going to lose badges can we at least have some form of notification in the News & Announcement section of the site when this happens? It would also be nice to know why.
you're lucky to have lost only 2

I just searched through the badges, and just by eyeball I cant see any that are missing...
I'm the kind of guy who stops the microwave at 1 second just to feel like a bomb defuser.

Do you think you can be a badass in my leaderboard?? GTN Badass of the Month

well considering my badge count hasn't changed I doubt we lost any.

Yes, Kaens will probably know exactly which two were removed.
ah I get it. sorry brain fart there for a second. well I noticed that he retired the 'Zombified' badge that were technically supposed to be earning if we win the Fitness Challege Cycle 2. So dafuq?

TheOne Ring to Rule Them All - Complete any game in the Lord of the Rings Series - this badge is missing
my bad this badge is still active


Myspace Not Yours - Connect your account to Myspace - this badge is missing

EDIT: when I mean missing, I mean they are not there at all, not just retired.

I never used OpenID not even once, hell I didn't even know it existed. lol

Which is why the badge was broken, as you basically could not get the OpenID to work without it tunneling you to the other badge it was associated with.

To clarify: It was my hopes that this badge and the previous badge would simply be replaced by whatever new badge was put in place and all previous winners would not have the chance to double dip (so to say). This may still be the case but let me check in and find out exactly what is happening. If nothing does occur the winners will be awarded the Challenge, What Challenge badge at the very least.
