I have answered this question on stackoverflow. I have answered this question after about 60 days and got 2 up-votes. I am not sure why I didn't get Revival Badge?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


Answered more than 30 days later as first answer scoring 2 or more

You did not answer after 60 days, you answered on the same day. The time of answering needs to be 30 days after the question was asked.

    Actually, you don't need to be the first to answer. You just need to be the first to reach a score of 2, and the rules regarding that are very awkward. The problem here is the OP is confused. asked Sep 10 at 10:41 - answered Sep 10 at 10:46 -- I'm not sure where he got 60 days from. That's not even 1 day. – animuson Nov 5 '13 at 5:11
  • @animuson huh, didn't notice that. Fixed. – Manishearth Nov 5 '13 at 5:12
  • @animuson He's getting 60 days since it's been 55 days since he posted; as Manishearth pointed out, it's probably not knowing that the answer needs to be posted 30 days later, and that it's not given to just any post once it has 2 up votes and is 30 days old. – Dennis Meng Nov 5 '13 at 6:11
  • Got it. I think 30 means difference between two of my answers. – Ashwini Agarwal Nov 5 '13 at 6:21

    @AshwiniAgarwal The revival here is the question being revived with a new (and decent) answer, not you. :) – doppelgreener Nov 5 '13 at 6:31
