Got a commentator badge today. Though my activity tab (filtered on comments) shows only 8 comments. Either the 10 comments limit has changed or the SO App was generous to me today. Thanks for the badge, don't take it away :)

    Probably 2 of the comments were deleted after the badge was awarded. Don't worry the badge won't be removed.

    @Nick why not keep the [bug] tag and change to [status-bydesign]? Looks more proper to me. Oct 18, 2011 at 14:18

    @Shadow - because it's not a bug... Oct 18, 2011 at 14:29

    @Nick the badge description says "Left 10 comments" - so plainly speaking, for those not familiar with the way the system works, it looks like a bug. I'm not trying to be picky, just see it from newbie point of view. Oct 18, 2011 at 14:35

1 Answer 1


In addition to those 8, you have comments on 2 posts that have been since deleted here and here (visible to 10k users). The badge is behaving correctly...it's just that comments on deleted posts won't show up in your activity tab.

Enjoy your badge!
