Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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 recently deleted an answer I provided to a question. About 5 minutes later I received a notification that I was awarded the Peer Pressure badge for a completely different answer.

Two issues:

  1. The badge was awarded incorrectly - the text says:

    Deleted own post with score of -3 or lower

    I didn't delete the second answer; a moderator did.

  2. Even if (1) wasn't an issue, the badge should/shouldn't have been awarded for what I deleted today (depending on which path you take).

Make that three issues, Markdown overwrites a users' intentions when lists are separated by paragraphs but are the same list. – George Stocker Jul 13 '10 at 17:59
The users' intentions didn't match the users' actions. – perbert Jul 13 '10 at 18:03
As a side note (and I've already filed too many bug reports today, the search bar won't let you search for all open bugs in the system, it stops at [bug] -[status-completed] -[status-bydesign] -[status-planned] -[status-norepro] even though I still need -[status-declined] and -[status-review] removed from the search to find all the opened non-adjudicated bugs. – George Stocker Jul 13 '10 at 18:14
The search has a limit of 10 terms. That's 5 tags and 4 operators, which is what's killing you. Why not use bug -status~? – Grace Note Jul 13 '10 at 18:18
Good point. Let me try that. – George Stocker Jul 13 '10 at 18:20
It's working for me. That's the only reason I suggested it, complete with link. Unless you're referring to the term limit, which I'll admit was mostly out of conjecture from memory than on-hand proof. – Grace Note Jul 13 '10 at 18:22
I tried it by handwriting it and it didn't work. When I clicked on the link it worked. – George Stocker Jul 13 '10 at 19:13
@Grace Note what did you physically type to get that to work, I typed [bug] -[status~] and [bug] -status~ and neither worked. – George Stocker Jul 13 '10 at 19:31
I typed in the URL to get it to work. I've long since stopped using the search bar for anything more complex than just NOT operators. – Grace Note Jul 13 '10 at 19:37

Confirmed this bug and just pushed a patch, the only time people are notified are when they first get the badge, so sorry George you can not really confirm the fix.
