    Baby Praying Mantis received a First badge on Sep 15 because they were the first person to post a thing even though maybe someone else posted that thing after them and got featured for no other reason than, like, sometimes a bunch of people post a thing and the first person to post the thing doesn't get the credit that they deserve.
