Find out which question/answer awarded you the badge

I logged in this morning and there's a "You got a 'Nice Answer' badge" banner on my screen. Cool! But... I can't for the life of me figure out which answer it is for!

The only candidate I plausibly have (e.g. questions that were up-voted within last 2 days and are around 10 and around 20 ranges) is this one with 19 up-votes: The future of Perl? (Perl 6, Employability) - and I don't see any recent down-votes on it so it does not seem like "reached 20 and dropped" situation.

Any way I can figure this out myself? Not terribly critical but I hate unanswered riddles :)

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.

Nice Answer is for 10 upvotes. – random Oct 27 '09 at 15:54
You have 12 Nice Answer badges and 12 answers >= 10. Couldn't be that hard ;) – Ladybug Killer Oct 27 '09 at 16:04
The short answer is: no. The long answer as well as requests for it, are in the question linked. – Tom Ritter Oct 27 '09 at 16:25
@John - The problem was that NONE of the 12 were up-voted from 9 to 10 within 2 days prior to me seeing the new badge banner. – DVK Oct 29 '09 at 18:00
up vote 3 down vote accepted

There is no solution to your problem, if posed in general terms.

However, you get that badge at +10. The +20 doesn't come into play at any time. You may have been voted +10, got the badge, and then got 9 more upvotes for a total of +19.

THanks - i thought 20 gives 2 badges. So much for RTFMing :) – DVK Oct 29 '09 at 17:48
