Necromancer is awarded for

Answer a question more than 60 days later with score of 5 or more

The question was asked January 8, 2015, so that's a lot more than 60 days.

The reason the badge was awarded today is that you just got the fifth upvote. The edit itself is unrelated to the badge, although you probably got the upvote because the edit bumped the question to the front page.

  • \$\begingroup\$ @Qwertiy Yes, but NBZ's assumption was that he edited the answer 60 days after the challenge/answer was posted (see question title). \$\endgroup\$ Feb 16, 2016 at 13:27
