On my profile page, the Informed badge is shown as the next badge to obtain:

enter image description here

Clicking it even shows a popup with a link to the Tour page, but it looks quite different from other SE sites. Looking at the badge list, it seems the Informed badge doesn't even exist. If that is correct, this looks like a bug - the Informed badge should then be removed from the trackable badges for this site.

  • Other than this badge and the 3 "Beta" badges, there appear to be no other badge differences between Stack Apps and "normal" Stack Exchange sites. Commented Jun 13, 2016 at 22:31

    I have been posted the same bug in MSE on Jan '16.

The Informed badge is removed from the "Next badge" tracking. Previously it was listed in the Available badges section. Now it is not available under the Available or Bronze section. So the bug has been fixed recently.

Screenshot for reference:
