This question already has an answer here:

I had a total of 10 bronze badges when I had only one login using my company ID, but once I added my personal email ID for login, I just got the badges count in Stack Overflow reset to 7; today it got incremented to 8. But surprisingly reputation has not been affected.

It's just getting screwed up. Any idea how to get my badges back?

  • How do you know you had 10 badges? – Martijn Pieters Mar 6 '14 at 11:05
  • What are the missing badges? You might repeat the actions to get them back. – Toon Krijthe Mar 6 '14 at 11:25

Do see this link:

  • Exactly. Thanks harshalbenake. Also the links you suggested shows the bug but not a solution. – Kailas Mar 6 '14 at 11:10
  • @Kailas: that's because apparently this is not a bug but a deliberate decision that some badges are not automatically merged when merging accounts. What badges exactly did you lose? – Martijn Pieters Mar 6 '14 at 11:27
