Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

How to get the question which awarded me “Necromancer” badge?
Got the Necromancer badge, but for what?

I can't tell what answer I was awarded it for; I haven't answered many, and none of them looks 60 days old.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

No, your reputation on meta will not affect your SO reputation. They are independant of each other. – Troggy Nov 24 '09 at 17:57
Awarding the badge after the fact seems weird. I posted an answer more than a year ago and got the badge today. Doesn't seem logical. – David Balažic Jul 1 '15 at 13:05

It is for that question. It was asked on May 3rd and you answered on Nov 20th. It obviously got more than 5 up votes.

I beat you by 53 seconds - neener neener! – Adam Davis Nov 24 '09 at 17:33
I see. My answers get ordered by reply date, not by question date. Thanks. I hope negative reputation on meta doesn't spill out to SO ... :-) – user139223 Nov 24 '09 at 17:45
Technically, Adam did beat me. Haha. He deserves the accepted answer more than I because we said pretty much the same thing. I can't delete this answer though cause it is the accepted one. – Troggy Nov 24 '09 at 17:56


It was asked in may, you answered in Novemeber and got over 5 upvotes.

Well, I guess the extra upvotes will have to suffice until OP re-selects your answer. ;) – Troggy Nov 24 '09 at 20:04
hehe, no problem, really! As long as the question is answered - that's all that matters. – Adam Davis Nov 25 '09 at 14:42
