What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 122 Stack Exchange communities.

The description for the Quroum badge on Stack Overflow says:

One post with score of 2 on meta.

Sounds to me as if I need exactly one post with precisely a score of 2.

Wouldn't this be a better description?:

First post with a score of 2 or more on meta.

Most badge-descriptions of also use the words "First" and "with a score of ... or more" .

EDIT:

Okay, the usage of the word "First" also causes some ambiguity. As SingerOfTheFall suggested:

At least one post with a score of 2 or more on meta.

First post seems to imply that it has to be the first post you make on Meta? –  Fluffeh Sep 13 '12 at 13:27

I smell an attempt to get the mentioned badge! xD –  SingerOfTheFall Sep 13 '12 at 13:30
    
@Fluffeh so you're saying that the "Excavator" badge also implies that it has to be the first post? :) –  Ruud Lenders Sep 13 '12 at 13:30

@Ruud, "First" is indeed ambiguous. "At least one post with a score of 2 or more on meta" will be better IMO –  SingerOfTheFall Sep 13 '12 at 13:31
    
@RuudLenders No, I guess I am saying that the description for Excavator is also ambiguous :) –  Fluffeh Sep 13 '12 at 13:34
    
@SingerOfTheFall you're right. And my attempt was successfull :D –  Ruud Lenders Sep 13 '12 at 14:37

Don't you get the badge when your score becomes 2 - so (even if only momentarily) your score will be precisely 2 - even if it subsequently increases or decrease?

But maybe a +1 for being a pedantic test engineer, even though I can't yet give you a +1 here :-)

Thanks peeps... I can now :-) –  Andrew Sep 13 '12 at 14:32
    
True ;) But, I'm not saying that the current description is incorrect. I just pointed out that it fails to describe the badge without ambiguity ^_^ –  Ruud Lenders Sep 13 '12 at 14:34
