I logged in this morning to find that I'd received the privilege of protecting questions, which requires about half the reputation that I currently have, and, upon logging into Meta, that I'd earned the "Citizen Patrol" badge for my first flagged post: an operation which I'd done some time ago, and haven't done recently.

Citizen Patrol badge

Are these new? Did something get reset? Is it a bug?

  • \$\begingroup\$ I think that these are new priveledges and badges that have been added. I had the same thing happen. \$\endgroup\$

These are new privileged and changed badges, so this is by design.
