My question, asked on Math.SE, linked here, has 12k views at the time of asking this question, but I am not awarded the Famous Question badge until a few minutes after this question was originally asked (on October 6, 2020). Why is that? I understand there may be a slight delay, even maybe a day or so, but certainly not that long?

Proof that I just got it today:

    $\begingroup$ That's a good question and perhaps that you will get an answer here, but it seems to me that a better place for it is Meta StackExchange. $\endgroup$ Oct 7, 2020 at 13:10
