Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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 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
