FADE TO BLACK
lil gave me the nudge... I better come clean.
The short version of a long story is that I got the job offer. I'm in the middle of negotiating the exit from my current employer... and if all goes well, I will have an even better story to tell after Thanksgiving.
I think that badges don't go to "you" per se... they go to the post. So this post has been badged, not you.
There is a secret sauce algorithm that determines when you earn badges to spend (posts, comments, shares, etc). That algorithm might include a factor of having your content badged... That I don't know.
I hope that helps.
