Couple of hours ago, I was awarded the Excavator badge on Meta:


Now, looking at my profile, the badge is no longer there. Heck, even the badges page says no one has been awarded. Was it revoked?

There was a bug in the awarding of these badges, as part of fixing that we nuked the badges (since they were brand new anyway)...they'll be re-granted as the badge runs on each site (this may take a while).

I receive that Excavator badge without deserving it! and pointing to a post I didn't edit – user149110 Aug 15 '11 at 14:05
@HernánEche Link to the post? – Sathya Aug 15 '11 at 14:05
@Hernan: stackoverflow.com/revisions/199418/3 You mean that the badge shouldn't be awarded for tag edits only? – Cody Gray Aug 15 '11 at 14:10

Weird, I don't remember to do any edit!.. it seems like pressing "edit"->"save" with no edition.. it was a long time ago, then I think "Excavator" wouldn't correspond anyway – user149110 Aug 15 '11 at 14:46
