I just took a look at the badges and most of them seem pretty straight forward. But what the heck is a rollback and how does one do that?

@Benjie @Cvrgoje @Modraw & @Utopia - y'all are the only users that have this badge - any clues?

  • Um, did an answer regarding public humiliation and mud appear here briefly? I'm looking at you @Utopia…

  • @Utopia, dude I'd have picked that up as the official answer. Why did you delete?

  • @georgi.m @AdamAxbey K - I rolled it back. T'was a joke and I was waiting for someone to undelete it, but, fine. :)

At my first SSD meet-up party Andrew, Shaun, Jay and Colin made me douse myself with mud and roll in a swine pit backwards in order to award me with the "rollback" badge.

I guess it was some kind of SSD hazing prank. Yeah, pick on the new guy why dontcha.



p.s. Rene recorded it and put it up on his blog as a free download. :(


a site like this allows anyone to edit anything (including other people's posts), whilst keeping versions of the content, so a rollback is just that - rolling back to a previous edit.

  • Thanks @georgi.m! I did google rollback and badge, but I had no idea this site was create by the Stack Overflow (or what Stack Overflow was) so my google was all "gruh?" when I queried with "rollback badge"
