The other day I was awarded the gold badge for discussion (here on MSO, of course). Today I no longer have the badge and the award is no longer in my activity list. However, I still have one gold badge next to my name.
- Jeff hates me.
- Welbog mistook it as a pat of butter for his waffles.
- A bug caused the badge to be erroneously awarded or revoked, but did not update the badge count.
Is this a bug? Should I have received the badge? Is there a conspiracy at work here?
(Complaint: tag length restriction does not support badges-we-dont-need-no-stinking-bages).
