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

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. – Sergei Kurenkov Jan 23 '14 at 12:07
