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

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: 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
