Analytical badge is awarded to those who read all the sections of FAQ. I am pretty sure that I read all the sections of FAQ, but I did not see analytical badge on my profile.

I also tried using "expand all" option.

In my english.se profile, i've awarded recently with analytical badge,the same thing i've done in movies.se too.

  • @iandotkelly,But,you've got the analytical badge pretty well!! Commented Feb 13, 2012 at 14:47
  • Yes, but I got it a fair while ago - probably in the private beta. I see that it has been awarded fairly recently to someone though. I have asked one of the moderators to replicate this, and we will report to SE.

DFork42 replicated your problem. I've edited the question to add the [bug] tag.

Updated: Vijin. Someone else managed to get the Analytical badge just now when they offered to replicate your report. Could you have another go? The advice is to browse every link on the page, including the side bar, as well as opening and closing sections. There are some transitions as you click links - I am also told that you should not rush to click the next link until that transition is complete.
