Earlier today at one point A question I had posted an answer on had 23 votes with an accepted answer of 11 votes on the question, and supposedly met all of the requirements to receive the Populist badge. It remained like this for about six or so hours, after which the person who asked the question changed my answer to the accepted answer.
So what happened to my Populist badge? The accepted answer had more than 10 votes and my answer was double the score of the accepted answer. But I have no badge.
