Has anybody else stopped recieving badges?

I recently posted an answer to a question. Neither the answer nor the question are CW. I got 18 upvotes and no downvotes, but I did not get the nice answer badge... Not that I absolutely need it like I'll start crying without it, but as a developer, you know... debug. Could be a non-running cron.

marking as bug, just because...

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.

    
It might help if you post a link to the question/answer. Also the processes that allocate the badges run on a cycle so it might not have run yet –  ChrisF Jan 12 '10 at 11:41

I know, but I don't want to appear as a no shame advertisement for my answer. Those who are interested in the problem, will fish it out easily. –  Stefano Borini Jan 12 '10 at 11:43
    
It's presumably stackoverflow.com/questions/2039990 if anyone's interested. –  Dominic Rodger Jan 12 '10 at 11:47

Your profile shows Nice Answer x 22 badges with as many answers with 10+ upvotes.

Probably one of your other posts which generated a nice answer, got deleted / migrated / merged.

Badges are (almost) never removed, so you won't get the next (n) badges, because you already have "more" than you should.

That's by far the most common reason.
