Get them on what questions or answers exactly? Your highest voted answer got score of 4 and highest scored question got score of 1. (!) –  Shadow Wizard Sep 10 '13 at 8:46
    
You haven't been upvoted 10 times yet - read the badge description. –  Qantas 94 Heavy Sep 10 '13 at 8:47

Score != reputation. –  Bart Sep 10 '13 at 8:48

"Score" means number of upvotes, not amount of reputation earned - if that's what's confusing. –  Roger Rowland Sep 10 '13 at 8:48

@RogerRowland ok I understood thank you –  user193530 Sep 10 '13 at 8:48

@RogerRowland: I thought the score was upvotes minus downvotes. –  Qantas 94 Heavy Sep 10 '13 at 8:49

I respectfully submit that the down votes here might not be recognizing that "Score" and "Reputation" might not immediately seem like different things to new users. –  Andrew Barber Sep 10 '13 at 8:49
    
@Qantas94Heavy Technically, you are correct there, as relates to the badge(s) in question. –  Andrew Barber Sep 10 '13 at 8:50

@AndrewBarber in fact i was confused because "Answer score of 10 or more. This badge can be awarded multiple times. " does not mean for me "get 10 upvote"; now I know :) –  user193530 Sep 10 '13 at 8:51

Oh, that old score-not-equal-to-rep chestnut. Why not just clarify the text, dagnammit?! –  Grant Thomas Sep 10 '13 at 8:51
    
@GrantThomas i'd like to suggest such a text but i fear to be killed so I prefer that a moderator do it. –  user193530 Sep 10 '13 at 8:56
    
Because it rhymes @GrantThomas. "Answer score of 10 or more".... don't you dare touch it. –  Bart Sep 10 '13 at 8:57

@Bart well, it can be changed to "Answer with 10 or more upvotes" but then it won't be accurate because answer with 15 upvotes and 6 downvotes won't give the badge. Back to square one! –  Shadow Wizard Sep 10 '13 at 9:18

Nice Question Question score of 10 or more.
Nice Answer Answer score of 10 or more.

Score means upvotes - downvotes = 10 upvotes not 10 reputations.

As written, it sounds like you need exactly 0 downvotes. (When else would up - down = up?) –  Joshua Taylor Sep 10 '13 at 11:45
    
if you have atleast 10 upvotes more than the downvotes then upvote - downvote =10 –  Zaheer Ahmed Sep 10 '13 at 11:53
    
I (and I expect others) understood what you meant; it was just a humorous algebra nitpick. Still, though, it's upvote - downvote ≥ 10, not update - downvote = 10, since it's "score of 10 or more". –  Joshua Taylor Sep 10 '13 at 13:21
