List of all badges with full descriptions

I had 2 answers, 0 questions, and did not get this badge on skeptics.SE, but looking around the badge list, I see one user with 3 questions and 0 answers that got the badge, as well as a user with 3 answers/0 questions, and a user with 1 question/2 answers.

So as far as I can tell, the minimum cutoff seems to be 3 total posts (questions and/or answers).

Can anyone confirm this? Is it an absolute number, or does it adjust to the exchange's overall activity? And are there any other criterion?

Edit: Herp, I did not find this question when I searched about this before asking my question.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

    
I voted to close too hastily on this one; if you vote to close as a dupe of anything, use the post the OP found –  Pops Mar 4 '11 at 20:33

@Pop If the criteria aren't in the big FAQ, they should be added. I was going to link to Chris' answer from there, but he didn't seem too confident about the criteria. –  Jon Seigel Mar 5 '11 at 15:08

@Jon: I think the criteria in the FAQs for this badge are wrong. Jeff said somewhere that they changed, but never said to what. –  John Mar 12 '11 at 2:46

This doesn't seem to correlate with my data-- I had 9 bronze badges. –  Jason Plank Mar 4 '11 at 19:42

Aye, one of the Skeptics has Beta but only 1 bronze badge, anyway. –  Grace Note Mar 4 '11 at 19:56

Hm... this has been accurate for the few betas I participated in. Skeptics has been out of private beta for merely one day, at this point; the Beta badge has been known to take a little while to show up. Not sure what to think about Grace Note's comment; two badges were not being displayed on Skeptics for a while, but one was silver. –  Pops Mar 4 '11 at 20:28

It seems this was changed in July '10 or so-- see the last three comments to this answer. –  Jason Plank Mar 5 '11 at 7:48
