Yes it does. This was addressed on Meta Stack Exchange a few years ago, and is now working. My experience confirms what the answer says on that page – I have kept my streak alive on this and other SE sites by using the Android app. But, it's not sufficient to simply open the app – I have found that it's necessary to actually load a new page each day, ...

Contrary to your assertion that "There really isn't much to do for a new member on this site", new members can immediately engage in the core business of the site which is to post questions and answers. Any stuff that a new user can't immediately do (such as "have their say" by commenting on other people's posts) is not the main point of the site which let ...

This is one badge you probably shouldn't go about trying to create, but given the right scenario it's easy enough to get. You need a post (owned by anybody) that was edited (by anybody) but the edit was a bad deal and the best thing for it is to roll back to a previous revision from the edit history page. This is most useful in the event of A) deliberate ...

Honestly, if you can't be be bothered to even copy/paste a post to the correct place to ask it, this site may not be for you. Asking and answering questions in the way our guidelines expect is hard work and takes time. If you are not willing to invest even a modicum of effort into figuring out how the site works you're going to be frustrated at evey turn. ...

As you say, this isn't particularly feasible – the entire Stack Exchange platform is heavily dependent on the reputation structure. For example: Reputation dictates how many privileges you have on the site. It would be absolute chaos if all users could perform all actions, even users with practically no experience on the site. For more info, see the ...

What would Jesus do? Would he require someone to achieve a certain amount of badges before they could chat with Him? As I read the gospels, Jesus would probably ask more than that. Two scriptural events suggest that he asks a lot of us. Matthew 16:24 / Luke 9:23 / Mark 8:34 If anyone wants to come after Me, he must deny himself and take up his ...

First, a relevant question on MSE. To give you a sense of the rarity of rollbacks, the percentage of my edits that are rollbacks at the time of this writing is about 0.8%. The other three people who have interacted with this question sit at 1.1% (Curiousdannii), 4% (Caleb), and 0.2% (David). Now, to give you a sense of the types of circumstances that can ...

I earned mine when somebody else edited my question, and I rolled it back to my previous version. The history can be seen here

One problem this site is suffering from lately is a lack of +1's. I think reputation on the site is pretty important and it gives some air of credibility to users who know the ropes and are good askers or answerers. The purpose of the reputation system on the site is just gamification, not to lord it over people or anything. The site hasn't been +1'ing ...

If anyone actually feels that their gaining of reputation on this site is feeding sin in their lives, there is a simple solution for that individual: they can mark all of their posts "community wiki". This means they won't get any reputation for their posts, although the rest of the system will continue as it is.
