Suppose I ask a question for which I receive 10 upvotes. I get Nice Question badge because of that.

Suppose an hour later, 4 people downvote my question: my badge will still be there and will never be removed. Is this a bug? Or is there an other explanation for this?


Quoting SE Meta website:

With the exception of tag badges, you keep whatever badge you earned - even if you no longer meet the criteria.

There are some rare cases, where a badge will be manually removed when there is fraud involved. But those are rare scenarios, and are only done in extreme circumstances.
