I guess that is a bug that should be fixed.

The rules are being changed; you're getting one Steward badge for every 1,000 reviews in a queue. See this comment by Stack Exchange staff member @animuson:

There's supposedly an announcement about review updates coming out today, if it hasn't been published somewhere yet. Seems the code is getting ahead of itself.

However, there seems to be a bug:

This is my bug, caused by a temporary issue with and old batch job running after a migration took place. I have a fix I can roll out in a few.

  • Weird, thanks. Then the old badges should be removed. Commented Jan 28, 2021 at 17:09
  • Yeah, there seems to be a bug (see the update or Meta.SE itself).

  • But it's going to be 1 gold badge for every 1000 reviews? That will be a good change as it's a small incentive to keep reviewing. Commented Jan 28, 2021 at 18:29
  • @Colin'tHart correct.
