I answered a question ~380 days old and both my answer and the question have a positive score. Requirements were met a few hours ago.

The requirements for Backlog:

Answer a question from 2019 or earlier that does not have any answers. Both question and answer must have a positive score.

While a question could have a deleted answer, that I cannot see due to < 10k reputation, which prevents this hat from being awarded as it is currently coded, in no practical way is a deleted answer an answer... See this accepted answer on how the Enlightened badge is awarded for a similar situation.

Here is the question: How to refresh a blazor sub/child component within a main/parent component?.

    I wonder if there's a deleted answer there that's messing with this. Can a >10k SO user confirm?

    @Spevacus yes, there is a deleted answer. Self deleted last year, 0 score.

Full description is:

Answer a question from 2019 or earlier that does not have any answers. Both question and answer must have a positive score.

And as per rene's comment, there is a deleted answer present there, making you not eligible for that hat.

    To be fair, this might as well be a bug in the hat. E.g. for the Enlightened badge an older (but deleted) answer on the same question doesn't matter.

    @YaakovEllis Can you please explain why the team decided to implement it this way? How are <10k users supposed to know that there is a deleted answer before attempting to earn the hat? Are they expected to ask a 10k+ user in order to check beforehand? I'll add that the badges that check for first answers ignore deleted answers, so why was it decided to code this hat differently?
