I filled all the details(fields) in my profile and got "Autobiographer badge". But if I undo the changes the badge is still part of my profile. Below is the link https://stackoverflow.com/help/badges/9/autobiographer?userid=2168706

Is this a bug and if it is, can it be solved?

This is by design. Once the badge is awarded is not taken back except tag badges.

    Nope @SantoshSahu: If we start taking back the badges, we have to award the same badge again and again whenever it qualify.
