Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

The excerpt of this badge says: Edited first post that was inactive for 6 months.

But I am a member for just 3 months.

Don't I understand the badge explanation?

Did you edit someone else's post that was six months old at the time? – agf Aug 15 '11 at 10:32
I also won the Excavator badge today, excavator, ha-ha-ha! Thank you SO, nice surprise! ;-) – Tomas Aug 15 '11 at 10:51

It doesn't have to be your own post. You could have edited someone else's post that was 6 months old.

Your SO profile links to information about the badge you've earned, showing that the question for which you earned this badge is this one: Lesser known language constructs of Object Pascal (Delphi).

At the time of your edit, the question had been inactive since November 11, 2008, plenty more than the required 6 months. (See all revisions for comparison purposes.)
