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

On roll back, badges awarded during this period are not removed.

Suppose I earned Nice Question badge for my question. But after roll back votes to the question became less than 10, then also Nice Question badge was not removed. Is it a bug?

But I got next time too.. – Sachin Mhetre Mar 29 '12 at 11:29
@ShaDowWizArd - That's outdated information, the badges are no longer "count based" as of months ago, several meta answers around with that info. – Nick Craver Mar 29 '12 at 11:30
@Nick didn't know that.. any official post about it? – Shadow Wizard Mar 29 '12 at 11:32
@Sha - I've answered it several times, I guess that counts? I did a major badge code overhaul on the backend months ago to make them more maintainable, but ended up fixing tons of bugs and moving them off count-based in cases with a reason as well. – Nick Craver Mar 29 '12 at 11:34
Actually what I said before is not relevant - Nice Question badge is granted once the question reach +10 score it doesn't matter if later the score goes down - the badge is still valid, and it's per question. – Shadow Wizard Mar 29 '12 at 11:35
For those interested - here is the change Nick was talking about. – Shadow Wizard Mar 29 '12 at 11:43

Not a bug, this is by design.

Badges are not removed (apart from tag badges).
