I am SO user.

I just saw that if I delete an answer more then 3 upvotes then i got displined badge after geting this badge if i undelete my answer then i got my bounty & badge remains the same.

i have search on meta & i found

Badges are not removed on roll back

but I think this kind of badge must be revert back. otherwise no use of this. I got this badge in 2 account me & my friend same.

so I know its reproducable bug & not any caching issue.

  • this means that they know this bug & still not solving? why? & they will get back badge manually??? sounds odd..

  • Incase if you feel guilty of having this badge even after undeleting it, there is no issue in deleting it again.

    Actually it is not a bug, it is status-bydesign. Normally, badges are not revoked. Jan 28, 2014 at 5:58
  • No it is not odd, rather called as status-bydesign. If you read the answer in the above comment link However, if the criteria for a badge no longer exist — e.g. the post it was awarded for is deleted — the next award of that badge is negated.
