What is meta?

I have joined about 4 days ago. After joining the next day I edited this post. As you can see it was being approved and I got 2 reputation points as normal rule applies. Now this post was about a year and 6 months old so I should be awarded the badge enter image description here Edited first post that was inactive for 6 months. I thought it might take time to award such badge, but as you can see it's been 3 days passed but still I haven't got this badge, is it a bug or misunderstanding of mine?

I have already read this question, titled How long does it take for badges to be awarded? How are they generated?

As you already know the description of the Excavator badge:

Edited first post that was inactive for 6 months.

The post you have edited is more than 6 months old but not inactive for 6 months or more. It was edited 2 days ago before your edit.

Ah, so that's why i saw that question. It was confusion for me, that how come i got that old question to edit ? So it is like i joined the site and at the same time this question comes at top because of the editing, and i edited it again. Thanks for the explanation. – Raynold Mar 19 '13 at 4:42
