Will a completed track count towards a monthly badge?

I completed Rust in January at the start of #12in23, but Mindshifting May has Rust as a language and to keep learning Rust I thought of continuing it for May. So my question is pretty much this…

If a language is included in a monthly badge language and a user has already completed 5 exercises in that language.

Will the badge trigger automatically, or does the user have to complete 5 new exercises in that language for it to count? Or will the language be excluded since it’s already technically completed? :thinking:

This has probably been answered before but I cannot find it… :man_shrugging: Also, this does not concern the year-long badge.

It’ll be 5 new exercises. The badge logic explicitly counts how many exercises were published in that specific month.
