I recently answered a question that was several months old, and my answer was accepted. I thought this would earn me a badge, but upon looking, realised the badges were issued for upvoted answers, rather than accepted answers, fair enough I suppose as an answer may have already been accepted. However I did think it strange that there seems to be no gold version of this chain (e.g. 25 upvotes on an answer provided 90+ days after the question was asked). Does anyone know why there is no such badge?
Using EdoDodo's data query, here are some potential awardee numbers:
25 votes, 90 days = nearly 900 users
50 votes, 120 days = 250 users
100 votes, 120 days = 60 users
So now another question presents itself: How many users should a gold badge be awarded to, approximately?
