A few weeks ago, I answered the questions

  1. sum of elements in a `std::vector` (my answer)
  2. Is there a better way to initialize an allocated array in C++? (my answer)

How far am I from getting the Guru badge for the above two questions? Will I get Guru if the count of upvotes is +41 or +40 (including all the upvotes and downvotes)?

Can anyone get a Guru badge for an answer marked as community wiki?

You are 5 and 8 votes respectively getting the badge (as of the time of writing). – ChrisF Aug 20 '10 at 11:10
Someone downvoted both the linked answers as well as this question. – Prasoon Saurav Sep 3 '10 at 10:52

Guru is awarded if you have a total score (ups minus downs) of 40 or more (so 5 and 8 more net upvotes for you currently).

It can be awarded to community wiki.

The link "It can be awarded to community wiki." is invalid. – skwllsp Jan 23 '14 at 12:07
