Today, first time I logged-in to math.stackexhange.com. I have other associated accounts also, so I got $101$ reputation initially. I vote-up one question then suddenly I undo the vote-up. After that it shows me supporter badge on my profile. If I am going to all accounts page, the page shows one bronze badge for mathematics account. Isn't it a bug or regular behaviour?

Since Willie may be too busy to repost his old comments, I'll write a CW:

  • By design, general badges are not revoked. For badges that can be awarded multiple times (such as Nice Answer and many others) the system will "get even" with you next time you qualify for the badge. For example, every time your answer reaches a score of 10, it compares the number of your 10+ answers and the number of your Nice Answer badges; if the second is less than the first, you get the badge again.

  • Tag-based badges are processed differently, and may be lost if you no longer qualify for them. Source

  • Meta SO has a community-generated list of all badges with full descriptions which explains the eligibility criteria for each badge.
