Last night I had a whole bunch of badges and more than 100 Best Answers in several categories. I had almost gained a Silver Badge in Motherboards and Memory! This morning I have only three badges and about 3 Best Answers.
Did Congress pass a Badge Tax? Were mine redistributed to others who had fewer Best Answers?
Funny, but no. Your profile shows that you have 13. Make sure you're logged into the US forum, and not the UK. Look at the flag in the top right hand corner. The badges don't transfer when you move (or get forcefully moved) to the other forum.
Thanks aford10, they are back. I always log-in to the US forums. When I checked my status this morning there were only 3 - all related to time and not best answers. I didn't know I could be moved to another forum.
