I hooked up StackOverflow to Chime and it gave me the badge, presumably because Chime visited the site invisibly for me. Can this badge be removed from my profile somehow? I don't want it unless I've earned it.

Such a funny request. You must be the only one here asking to remove a badge ! – j0k Mar 6 '13 at 8:30
Hmm.. If you don't mind, I am ready to borrow the badge.. :) – Krishnabhadra Mar 6 '13 at 8:37
How will you know when you've "actually" earned it? – Juhana Mar 6 '13 at 8:41
chimeapp.com btw. – Won't Mar 6 '13 at 13:43

Nope; you have it now. Removing the badge wouldn't do much good, since you still have 30 consecutive access days, so the badge would be automatically reawarded.

You're right though, this shouldn't really count, and it won't in the future (so you won't get the Fanatic badge this way). But the Enthusiast badge you get to keep. After all you were enthusiastic enough to make us aware of this :)

"so you won't get the Fanatic badge this way" because you are know blocking Chime or something like this? – j0k Mar 6 '13 at 8:57
No, we just don't count the requests to get your inbox contents (which is what Chime polls, and probably other browser extensions as well) as a site access for the badge anymore. – balpha Mar 6 '13 at 9:05
