I really can't get the point why I was awarded the "quorum" badge. What does the "quorum" badge represent? Any suggestion..

Quorum (n)

a gathering of the minimal number of members of an organization to conduct business

http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/quorum

quorum (plural quorums)

The minimum number of members required for a group to officially conduct business and to cast binding votes, often but not necessarily a majority or supermajority.

"We can discuss the issue tonight, but cannot vote until we have a quorum."

Check out the http://meta.stackoverflow.com/faq , and even in the Stack Overflow FAQ proper it says

If you want to talk about the site itself, please don't do it here. Visit our meta-discussion site where you can talk about things like what questions are appropriate, what tags we should use, suggest a feature, or generally discuss how Stack Overflow works.

The description is pretty clear:

"One post with score of 2 on meta"

where meta is the meta site of that specific Stack Exchange site.

Additionally, there's a silver version of that badge named "Convention" which is defined to be:

"10 posts with score of 2 on meta"

AND there is a link to meta in the badge description itself! –  Jeff Atwood Dec 13 '10 at 7:50
    
I guess it also requires that the post is NOT tagged as community wiki, which might be a bit confusing when you look at your posts, specially on meta, where a lot of questions that are answered a lot is just that... So you might have a lot of posts that has more than 2 rep. and you still haven't got the Qourum badge because they are community wiki –  awe Dec 13 '10 at 12:11
