This question already has an answer here:

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?

  • Badges are to encourange good behaviour, there was good behaviour, why would the badge be taken back? – Richard Tingle Nov 18 '13 at 13:05

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

  • don't you think this is an issue in the design? – Santosh Sahu Nov 18 '13 at 12:53

    Nope @SantoshSahu: If we start taking back the badges, we have to award the same badge again and again whenever it qualify. – hims056 Nov 18 '13 at 13:04
  • @juergend that's graceness for you! (vs. blindness if you missed the punch line ;-)) – Shadow The Dragon Wizard Nov 18 '13 at 13:08
