The Critic badge states that you need to downvote 1 post "first downvote" well I downvoted 3 and still have not received it:

all time by type month week day 152 up 54 question 155 155 5 3 down 101 answer


As you can see: 3 down 152 up!

Patience, my young Padawan. Handing out badges does not seem to be instantaneous.

    If I recall correctly, some badges only run once a day since their determination is a bit CPU intensive. It's definitely not a real time thing. – Jacobm001 Oct 14 '17 at 18:51

    I believe the reason in this case isn't necessarily server load, but to protect anonymity—if the badge was awarded at the exact downvote time, it would be relatively simple for users to figure out who downvoted them, which is not good for anyone. – Aurora0001 Oct 16 '17 at 18:40
