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

I wrote an answer which was voted down to -3. I then deleted that answer, but I got no badge, yet.
I think that happened because the answer was voted to be deleted by a second user.

deleted by SecondUser, rekire 22 mins ago

Is this a bug or a feature?

Sometimes it takes a little while for badges to show up. – PengOne Jan 2 '12 at 23:50
That happened 3 hours ago. No changes yet. – rekire Jan 3 '12 at 0:16
I suspect it may be because the previous vote to delete caused your deletion to just count as a "vote", instead of you deleting it. That's my guess because it's gone past the next UTC date, and still not happened. – Andrew Barber Jan 3 '12 at 1:22
@AndrewBarber, this should be an answer – Tomas Jan 7 '12 at 12:27

Starting with the next build we'll change how some back-end data is recorded on PostHistory - I manually corrected your case to have the same behavior, you'll see the badge on the next run.

Specifically, when an owner's "binding" vote is invoked to delete or undelete (when that vote alone is enough to cause the action, e.g. not reversing a community decision) we'll record that as the only voter - since that's effectively what happened. Also, it simplifies many checks downstream, including ones in this badge.
