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

I added a comment to the first answer on this question, voted it down and won an Organizer badge?

However I didn't retag it as the description of the badge says. I think this is a bug

So this is probably a bug, what should I do?

EDIT: So did anyone found out why I won this badge?
Did the previous user retag the question and when I voted down I got the badge on his behalf?

Not sure what's going on with this. In your activity history, I don't see any retagging at all. Is this your only user account? I know the powers-that-be have been doing some account merging lately, and you may have been awarded that badged on another account. – Jon Seigel Apr 27 '10 at 20:28
This is my only account. – Gabriel Guimarães Apr 27 '10 at 20:32
So if this is a bug, what should I do, simply by posting it here is it reported or should I do something to report this as a bug? – Gabriel Guimarães Apr 28 '10 at 16:59
Ho-ho. Planned since 2011. – nicael Apr 23 '14 at 17:46

Took a while but I think that I've figured out the real bug. As can be seen here:

You got the badge for totally different question (10K only) than what you thought and the badge was awarded as a result of you deleting the question. Your other actions (commenting, downvoting) are totally irrelevant, you could also blame the coffee you were drinking. ;-)

In that question revisions I do see one old revision where you changed tags but as part of bigger edit, so it did not count as "retag" at the time.

As far as I can tell, this is an edge case where the delete process trigger kind of "badge recalculate" task that wrongly identifies edits that change tags (but not only tags) as retag.

lol those features that show why and where the badge was awarded, cool btw. Tks to SO devs. So Retag of my own questions grants the Organizer Badge. – Gabriel Guimarães Oct 3 '13 at 22:57
@GabrielGuimarães yeah, retag of any question - but note there is different badge for editing. – Shadow Wizard Oct 3 '13 at 23:00

This will be fixed in an upcoming build, with an overhaul of the badge code. I'm going through each query and caught a few edge cases and bugs here and there. We're fixing them along the way, this one included.

Pssst, hey NickCraver. Was this ever completed, or is it status-planned still? – jadarnel27 Jun 18 '12 at 13:00
This is the oldest question with the [status-planned] tag. Is it still planned? – Jakob Weisblat Aug 22 '12 at 3:06
This has been planned for a LONG LONG time... – Doorknob Feb 7 '13 at 22:19
Nick, did I nail the bug down in this answer? And was it fixed by now? :) – Shadow Wizard Oct 1 '13 at 12:02

This appears to be a definite bug considering you have less than 250 rep. You can't even retag normal questions (though you can edit CWs) and I looked at your activity history(along with @Jon) and did not find any retagging.

The question was posted by me, maybe I can retag it because of that, but was the question retagged at all by anyone? I don't think so. – Gabriel Guimarães Apr 27 '10 at 22:13

Sometimes it takes a few minutes for badges to show up. It is likely that you previously re-tagged a question.

I didn't retag the question. – Gabriel Guimarães Apr 27 '10 at 20:24
