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

Well, I've only just noticed that after posting a somewhat popular answer (7ups question / 7ups + accept answer) I wasn't awarded any badges at all. Having looked at the badge list, I think that, if I'm not mistaken, I should've been awarded the following:

  • Good answer (answer score of 25 or more)
  • Nice answer
  • Guru (accepted answer and score of 40 or more)

Just to clarify, the score of the answer was 80.

That's probably it. Is something wrong?

Score refers to the number of up votes received not the reputation earned.

So you would need at least another 3 up votes before receiving the Nice Answer badge - which requires 10 up votes.

oh! Now I get it, sounds reasonable that guru, requires more than 4 upvotes. Thank you! – Juan Cortés Nov 14 '10 at 10:10
