I gave 5 answers on superuser. One has been downvoted, and apparently no other answer has been upvoted, so I currently have only one downvote. Despite this, I've been awarded the "teacher" badge, which is supposed to be granted only when you get upvoted.

This question came from our discussion, support, and feature requests site for meta-discussion of the Stack Exchange family of Q&A websites.


The best I can think is: maybe somebody upvoted one of your replies and then revoked it? (after all, a downvote+revoke awards critic...)

(the numbers don't support the alternative theory of 1 upvote and 2 downvotes)

  • Oh right, that could also be a case, although it's still a "bug" somehow. The badge should be assigned when the vote cannot change anymore (but I do see the trouble of handling the situation if the comment is edited, thus reopening the change). In the end I think it's not worth the effort, or even calling it a bug. – Stefano Borini Jul 16 '09 at 21:09
  • i know i gave a downvote, then revoked it a few minutes later, but i still got the "critic" badge (cast first downvote) about ten minutes later – Kip Jul 16 '09 at 21:30
