Clarify Electorate badge wording

It seems like the change to the Electorate badge wording decided in this thread, is inaccurate.

Electorate - Voted on 600 questions and 25% or more of total votes are on questions

If you vote on 600 questions than 100% of votes are questions.

I think this should read:

Voted 600 times and 25% or more of total votes are on questions.

Welcome to MSO, Grillz! Unfortunately, you have misunderstood the badge. Your proposed wording would award the badge to someone who upvoted 200 questions and 400 answers; that doesn't happen.

See the community-generated badge info page.

(That said, the very fact that you misunderstood is itself good evidence that the wording needs to be changed; just not the way you proposed.)

Thanks for this - didn't know that page existed. –  Grillz Nov 16 '10 at 16:14
    
when is that page you so lovingly created going to be a part of the official FAQ. I don't know how many times I or others have posted a link to it? –  Barry Nov 16 '10 at 16:46
    
@Barry, only a mod can add the [faq] tag to a question, so... whenever one of them feels like it. –  Pops Nov 16 '10 at 22:39
    
fair enough. Maybe they'll do it one day. I mean, it has only been viewed 700 times and upvoted numerous times.... ;-) –  Barry Nov 16 '10 at 22:42
