Why not make this but for questions too?

I love that everything is well though behind SO but I can't see no reason as to why great questions can't be prized with "Badges by subject".

Tag badges are designed to emphasize knowledge in a particular field. For good questions, there are already the Good Question, Notable Question, Famous Question, Stellar Question, and Popular Question badges. However, since questions indicate lack of knowledge in a particular field, there is no good reason to create these badges.

Also, since people love to try and get badges, this would cause a great increase in questions because of people trying to get these tag question badges, which simply prevents people who legitimately need their question answered from getting an answer.

Lack of knowledge in particular field would give a bad/trivial question. Good question need good knowledge. –  J-16 SDiZ Dec 10 '10 at 4:07
