Deleting a Badge

We hide the Delete capability to make it harder for Badges to be accidentally deleted.

To delete a Badge, you must login with your admin account.  Then visit:

This page lists all of your Badges.  This page has tabs at the top, including "EDIT" and "DELETE" -- do NOT click these tabs.  Do NOT click the CAPITAL "EDIT" or "DELETE" tabs.

Instead, look in the list -- each row has a lowercase "edit" and "delete" link for each individual badge.  Use THESE "delete" links to delete a badge.
