Last week I got a Nice Answer on SF for an answer to a question that was deleted quite a while ago.

At one point that question had been migrated over to SU, but I don't see it over there anymore so it must have been kicked back to SF at some point. I don't have 10K on SU so I can't see what it says over there.

I believe that my answer did have 10 upvotes at the point it was migrated to SU. Could it be that this badge was awarded retroactively?

After Ben Brocka's comment I noticed that all of the answers were deleted on June 1 which would explain why the badge was awarded. So now it looks like somehow the answers were undeleted and then redeleted.

  • You get all score based badges on the target site when a post is migrated. Are you sure it didn't get the badge after migration but before deletion?

  • @Ben see my edit. I looked harder based on your comment and there is discrepancy between the date the question was deleted and the date the answers were deleted.

  • That's...weird, but it sounds like the badge was awarded properly.
