I'm just curious whether there was a precedent of changing a badge's class.

I am aware of the retirement of the Documentation badges on SO; but, strictly speaking, that wasn't a direct class change.

  • Do you mean a bronze badge becoming silver/gold, silver becoming bronze/gold or gold becoming bronze/silver? – Oded Sep 29 '17 at 12:53
  • @Oded Correct, I was using the wrong terminology. Edited my question. – Tamás Sengel Sep 29 '17 at 12:54
  • Retirement's happened before, I don't think badges have been transmuted downwards before tho – Journeyman Geek Sep 30 '17 at 6:50
  • The Reviewer badge used to be awarded in a really different way, but its class hasn't changed. – Glorfindel Sep 30 '17 at 8:34
