Can I get rid of these childish badges?

Every time I open the forum I can see there’s something new, but 9 out of 10 times that something is some useless automatically generated badge. I don’t know if there are users who are very proud of all the badges they collected, but for me they are annoying. I live very remote with only a very slow internet connection, so it’s quite annoying to get notifications of something “new” that turns out to be something needless. Can I switch this function off? Or can I at least switch the notification for badges off?

I agree. Notifications should be limited to inbox messages and (maybe) direct responses to forum posts. I feel like I miss the important things.
