Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Given the recent push to get more (up)votes on questions, why are there no badges for having a question with many upvotes?

Nice Question -> Good Question -> Great Question? – Tim Stone Jul 19 '11 at 14:08
=> We need better badge descriptions! (Make them a wiki!?) – Martin Scharrer Jul 22 '11 at 9:25

Because the description for the Question badges uses the word "score" instead of "upvote".

Thanks to Tim Stone for pointing me in the right direction.

Note that a "score" of 10 could mean 100 upvotes and 90 downvotes :-) – Hendrik Vogt Jul 19 '11 at 15:24
@Hendrik: a "score" could also mean "net upvotes * 10". See also… </vindication> – David Schmitt Dec 12 '11 at 12:08
