Badges Question (Bug?)

Hello, all.

Short question: I found that on the Forums here, the forum badges rewarded for completing certain tasks within the website seem to be taken away whenever a post becomes unlisted or is deleted by a user.

Is this an intentional part of the system, a bug, or something else that I don’t understand?



Well I think that makes sense.
The reason why a person would get that badge is no longer valid.

Intentional I would say (I’d have to double check)
Certain badges coincide with trust levels, trust levels constantly change depending on your activity and behavior.

Hope this helps
