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

This question already has an answer here:

We all wonder from time to time on which circumstances we get a certain badge. Some ask about it on meta. Then we can point to the list-of-all-badges-with-full-descriptions.

But wouldn't it be best to place the description of every badge where it belongs in the first place?

badge page

Copy editor for instance has a lot bigger description than just Edited 500 posts.
And don't get me started on the Epic and Legendard badge: Even some meta posts don't explain the conditions correctly.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

It seems like they could just put a link to the FAQ entry there, maybe just something simple like


after the short description.
