Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

I just learned that the Enlightened badge, is for the First (in time order) answer on a question that is also accepted (with 10 upvotes).

Up until now I thought it was for the First answer for a user that got accepted (with 10 upvotes).

The current text is

First answer was accepted with at least 10 up votes

I'm suggesting:

The First answer for a question was accepted with at least 10 upvotes

though other suggestions would be fine.

How about: "First to answer and accepted with at least 10 upvotes" (P.S. isn't it "enlightened"?) – Aarobot Feb 1 '10 at 22:09
@Aaronaught, yep, I've fixed it, post your comment as an answer and I'll upvote that, I like it better than mine – Lance Roberts Feb 1 '10 at 22:11
"The first answer to a question was accepted, and received at least 10 upvotes" -- even less ambiguous, but getting wordy. – Ether Feb 1 '10 at 22:27
@Aether, That's a better one also, but I think I prefer Aaronaught's. p.s. Do you get a notification for this when I use a separate A & E? – Lance Roberts Feb 1 '10 at 22:30
Sorry for the delay, I don't visit Meta all that often. ;) – Aarobot Feb 4 '10 at 23:55
Yes, yes, yes. Ever since I started using SO (nine months ago), I thought it was awarded the first time any one of your answers became both accepted and 10-upvoted. – Pops Apr 27 '10 at 15:50

As per my comment, my suggestion for the text is:

First to answer and accepted with at least 10 upvotes.

Not too verbose, but still pretty clear IMUEO*.

This will be the text starting with the next build. – Nick Craver May 12 '11 at 0:48
Too bad you didn't get the enlightened badge for this – Andreas Bonini Feb 27 '12 at 17:11

How about this:

"Gave the first answer to a question, and that answer received at least 10 upvotes and was accepted"

(Aaronaught's comment is great, but is still IMOPO* ambiguous, since a single user can give multiple answers to a question).

* In my overly pedantic opinion

I wonder why it has to be the first given answer, and I'm thinking maybe you were looking for something like: 'Gave an accepted answer with 10 upvotes prior to editing,' or, 'Gave an accepted answer with 10 upvotes in the first $timeperiod.'? Maybe the latter of the two would be best because the sooner would discourage necessary edition. – 千里ちゃん Jul 26 '11 at 16:09
