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

I see a lot of questions about a 'Nice Question' badge and 'Nice Answer' badge about their being not awarded one of the 2 mentioned badges.
I too misunderstood the badge definition given and asked this.

Now why shan't one of the moderators change the definition of 'Nice Question' to -
"Question with net up-votes of 10 or more" or something of that kind for the 6 similar badges (Nice Question, Nice Answer, Good Question, Good Answer, Great Question & Great Answer) with 6 6 similar definitions?
The score mentioned in the definition easily confuses one with reputation score.

This may be a bad suggestion but thought it could be considered.

Well once you understand how one works, you understand them all (6).

There is a difference between Question/Answer Score and Account Reputation and both are refered too differently in the badges section.

  • A score badge : Answer score of 25 or more.
  • A reputation badge : Active member for a year, earning at least 200 reputation.

I don't think any current badges need their names changed and especially not for a name that states the definition of "How to get the badge".
