The Enlightened badge has the following description

First to answer and accepted with at least 10 upvotes

My answer has 11 up votes and seeing as it is the only answer it was clearly the first answer.

So shouldn't I be awarded the Enlightened badge?

Answering my own question shouldn't matter as it still has to be up voted to 10 so it has to be a good answer.
