+1 I'm not interested in this kind of issue, but after taking a look, it's true that it's very confusing and downvoting this question is unfair. –  user161870 May 17 '11 at 6:33
    
Thanks a lot !! –  ViTo Brothers Apoyan May 17 '11 at 7:13
    
I have never once been confused by the wording of the reputation badges. But apparently, there's been a number of people recently who have been, and all of them come directly to Meta to whine about not having received the badges to which they're surely entitled... It's somewhat tiring. –  Cody Gray May 17 '11 at 8:15
    
We do have a more detailed list of badges with user-generated descriptions for this purpose. It wouldn't have helped the OP, though; his problem was a misunderstanding of the distinction between "on" and "in." –  Pops May 17 '11 at 14:40

@viTo Brothers Apoyan. You might want to note that at the bottom of stackoverflow.com/reputation you can see how many days you've hit 200 –  Some Helpful Commenter May 18 '11 at 5:18

You misunderstood what it means. To get the badge, you need to have received 200 reputation (the reputation cap) in a single day for 50 days total. It doesn't mean that you have at least 200 reputation after 50 days, that would be too easy. ;)

And what does this mean ? Earned at least 200 reputation on 150 days –  ViTo Brothers Apoyan May 17 '11 at 5:14
    
It mean that I must earn 200 reputation in a single day for 150 days total ? –  ViTo Brothers Apoyan May 17 '11 at 5:15
    
@ViTo: Yes that's right. –  Jeff Mercado May 17 '11 at 5:17
    
But there was a badge "Earned at least 200 reputation in a single day" Thats the difference ? I cant understand. It mean if I get 200 reputation in a single day I will get all 3 badge ? Yes ? Am I right ? –  ViTo Brothers Apoyan May 17 '11 at 5:19

@ViTo: Suppose today you earned exactly 200 rep. By doing so, you have earned the Mortarboard badge. You will not earn the Epic nor the Legendary badges yet. You would need to earn 200 rep in a single day another 49 times to earn the Epic badge and another 149 times to earn the Legendary badge. Does that make sense? –  Jeff Mercado May 17 '11 at 5:27
    
Okey now I Understand ! Thanks a lot ! But why -1 to this answer I cant understand ) Good luck ! –  ViTo Brothers Apoyan May 17 '11 at 5:41

@ViTo: To be honest, I don't know why someone downvoted the question. You misunderstood something about the site and asked about it. It's not a bad question and apparently reading about it again didn't help you understand it better. Unfortunately people will vote negatively without understanding what the question really is about. –  Jeff Mercado May 17 '11 at 5:52
    
Thanks a lot ! I think people are stupid ) Good luck to good people like you ! thanks ! –  ViTo Brothers Apoyan May 17 '11 at 6:08

Replacing "on 50 days" with "on 50 separate days" might avoid these misunderstandings? –  Rick Sladkey May 17 '11 at 7:19
