To start with this is totally a personal greed/want based question. Please feel free to point out if people here find this offensive/ immature to even ask. I was looking up at gold badges that have been awarded to some dedicated members our SE group. I came to the "Fanatic" category ( User has to visit the site for 100 consecutive days) I saw something that made me question the basis on which the below users were awarded the fanatic badge.
How are the badges awarded to users who at least look very new based on their reputation.Are these test user accounts from Stack exchange (or) are these 2 users genuinely visiting the site everyday and posting/ answering nothing at all ?
