Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Now that the voting on Area 51 has changed from on-topic/off-topic/not a good question, to up/down, there are several badge descriptions that are out of date:

  • Advocate First on-topic or off-topic vote
  • Centrist First question with 3 on-topic votes
  • Good Question Question with 30 on-topic or off-topic votes
  • Great Question Question with 50 on-topic or off-topic votes
  • Nice Question Question with 10 on-topic or off-topic votes
  • Radical First question with 3 off-topic votes

Please can they be updated to reflect the new voting mechanism?

They don't just need new descriptions, I believe they need new mechanisms. Off-topic votes are now votes to close, and there's max 5. – Matthew Read Oct 10 '11 at 16:19

Area 51's badges have been updated to reflect the recent voting changes:

  • Advocate: First up vote
  • Centrist: First question with a score of 3 or more
  • Good Question: Question score of 30 or more
  • Great Question: Question score of 50 or more
  • Nice Question: Question score of 10 or more
  • Radical: hidden from the badges page, but still shown on the profiles of users that earned it

We also took this opportunity to make an attempt at backfilling "badge reasons", so certain badges now show the proposals for which the badge was earned, e.g. the Revolution badge.
