    I apparently just got a Necromancer badge, but I don't recall necromancing anything recently, and I can't see any recent up-votes on my answers that would've given me this. So perhaps this is a bug report too. But in general, is there a way to see what you get a badge for when you get it?

    I strongly believe the answer to your question is 'No' yet this is the case in SE 2.0 as per Qiaochu's first contribution in the present migration thread.

    For your particular case: might it be your Fundamental Examples answer. I believe it would qualify as a Necromancer-answer, it now has exactly 5 votes, which is the threshold, and in addition is CW so that you would not see the vote in your rep-count.

    I believe the software has various cycles where it does a type of audit, to see if people have passed the threshold for various badges. So the timing between what you did and the rewarding of the badge can be a bit off.

    The description of the Necromancer badge says: Answered a question more than 60 days later with at least 5 votes
