On roll back, badges awarded during this period are not removed.

Suppose I earned Nice Question badge for my question. But after roll back votes to the question became less than 10, then also Nice Question badge was not removed. Is it a bug?

  • @ShaDowWizArd - That's outdated information, the badges are no longer "count based" as of months ago, several meta answers around with that info. Mar 29, 2012 at 11:30
  • @Nick didn't know that.. any official post about it? Mar 29, 2012 at 11:32

    @Sha - I've answered it several times, I guess that counts? I did a major badge code overhaul on the backend months ago to make them more maintainable, but ended up fixing tons of bugs and moving them off count-based in cases with a reason as well. Mar 29, 2012 at 11:34
  • Actually what I said before is not relevant - Nice Question badge is granted once the question reach +10 score it doesn't matter if later the score goes down - the badge is still valid, and it's per question. Mar 29, 2012 at 11:35
  • For those interested - here is the change Nick was talking about. Mar 29, 2012 at 11:43

Not a bug, this is by design.

Badges are not removed (apart from tag badges).
