This started for me, and apparently others, today. A user gets a new badge or a net-positive change in reputation, and the drawer icon does not change like it used to.

When I say drawer icon, I mean...

enter image description here

I am using Windows 10, Firefox 43.0.2

At 20:30 UTC today, net positive rep triggered the drawer icon to highlight. This may have been an anomaly.

  • \$\begingroup\$ @HeyICanChan I have not actually experienced badges, just net rep. I mentioned this in chat, and that is another thing someone mentioned. \$\endgroup\$ – Tritium21 Jan 4 '16 at 19:25
  • \$\begingroup\$ Seems better now, for me. Most-recent badge did light up the drawer. (Though that "Disciplined" one never did show up in the "achievements" list.) \$\endgroup\$ – nitsua60 Jan 5 '16 at 3:11

I was one who mentioned badges. I picked up "Disciplined" 8 hours ago: it shows up in my activity but never lit up my drawer. Then again, it's not listed in today's achievements, either, so perhaps I've just never noticed how long a lag there sometimes is.
