Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

Consider the "popular question" badge: "Asked a question with 1,000 views". Would I be correct in expecting that every question will eventually receive this badge as web crawlers look through the pages?

I always thought that badge was a bit weak; it has 56000 recipients, or almost twice as many as the insanely trivial Autobiographer. It's pretty much just "old question"; popularity has little to do with it since time isn't factored in – Michael Mrozek Jun 21 '10 at 6:23

Not if they're excluded from the counting. But if you can convince a thousand geeks to archive binge the trilogy, perhaps!

If people could mark a question as read, they'd be more likely to archive binge their favorite tag. +1 for linking to tv tropes. – Andrew Grimm Jun 21 '10 at 4:13
