Currently the wording for the Altruist badge is as follows:
First bounty accepted on another person's question (not by the system)
I can see two problems with this:
- It's unclear whether the badge is awarded for having a bounty awarded to you by another person or awarding the bounty to another person.
- It's inconsistent with the description of its brother, the Benefactor badge, which adds to the confusion of point 1 - you would expect similar wording if the requirements were along the same lines.
Benefactor's description goes as follows:
First bounty you manually awarded on your own question
So I suggest changing the wording for Altruist to:
First bounty you manually awarded on another person's question
The word manually already implies (not by the system). This makes it clearer that you don't get the badge for answering and being awarded a bounty - which I was unsure of even though the badge was only awarded 24 times. So really I'm asking for it to be dumbed down for others like me!
