The Stack Overflow / Stack Exchange sites have all a "yearling" badge.
Active member for a year, earning at least 200 reputation.
This badge can be awarded multiple times.
So each year, if the reputation has progressed at least from 200 points, you get a "yearling" badge.
Yet Merriam-Webster defines yearling as one that is a year old.
Which makes sense on your first year participating to one of those sites.
But does yearling still apply for your second, third or more years of participation to come?
If not, what would be a better term for that kind of achievement?
