Can anyone tell me what the rules are for an Enlightened Badge?

Got you another +1 from me for the answer on SO, though... –  David M Jul 22 '09 at 11:54

There's another answer with the same timestamp as yours.

Looking at the answer id numbers, yours is 615352 the other one is 615346, so it looks like the other answer was first by a few seconds.

You only get the Enlightened badge if yours is the first undeleted answer.

It wouldn't even need to be a few seconds, a few milliseconds would be enough. –  Brad Gilbert Jul 22 '09 at 13:59
Good point there Brad! –  ChrisF Jul 22 '09 at 14:29
@Nadeem_MK - the post only has one vote which gives you 10 reputation. The score is the total of upvotes - downvotes. It also needs to be the accepted answer - which again, your's isn't. –  ChrisF Sep 16 '13 at 8:07
