It looks like one user was awarded the silver badge twice at the same time.

Their badges page also shows the badge being awarded twice:

This looks like a bug. It could be that Lyxal messed something up by traveling in time to get it twice, but if it's happened to others, it may need to be fixed. On the other hand, this looks a benign bug, and it's not really hurting anyone.

Sorry, Lyxal. Blame ChartZ Belatedly, not me.

Exactly

Why go and fix something that only happened to one user when no one else is being bothered by the issue?

But on a more serious note, it is such a small problem that realistically, StackExchange probably isn't going to fix. If it was happening to multitudes of people, then maybe a fix might be needed, but that isn't the case here.

Nothing wrong with a bit of fun here and there. I find it a fitting testimony to my ability to break things accidentally.

    \$\begingroup\$ On the other hand: leaving this bug report open means that if SE ever bothers to do some bug fixing, we have something to show them, however insignificant it may be (no, I totally don't want to rob you of an extra badge ;P) \$\endgroup\$ – caird coinheringaahing Mar 23 at 3:36
