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

For each the description is:

Answer voted up N times

Where N is a threshold for the badge. In reality, however, the badge is achieved when upvotes - downvotes passes that threshold. Perhaps a better wording would be:

Answer upvotes exceeds downvotes by N

Along those lines, what about related badges for uncontested answers?

I would suggest making the badge request and this wording bug in separate questions. – Earlz May 7 '10 at 20:45

Ok, changed from

voted up (n) times


score of (n) or more

I would rather say it should be somethign like Answer has a net vote count of N. But yes, the current wording is confusing and there have been questions made about it before "I'm suppose to have this badge for my +10/-2 answer!"
