What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 133 Stack Exchange communities.

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 http://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/tagged/bug+-status~ 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.
