How to get the exterminator badge?


I found a confirmed bug in the Java course:


I remember somebody reporting a bug, in the forum, and they received the exterminator badge.

What are the requirements for receiving the exterminator badge?

As far as I know you must be the first person to report a confirmed bug to receive the Exterminator Badge.

I didn't such badge existed. I wish they can organize the badge because i'm tire of doing a infinite scroll on my profile badge.

1) Maybe organize them by categories, rarity.

2) make the badge smaller so it's easier to see all and instead of displaying the information to the left of the badge we can make it as a hover display

3) use drop down menu on the categories
