I see there are some questions about populist badge, but in this case, I have all the criteria for populist badge, I have highest score among all answers, I outscored the accepted answer more than 2 times and more than +10, even I was a first one to answer, but still I didn't get the populist badge.

P.S: This answer as you can see was for some years ago, today I see the gold badges and I was wondering why I didn't get it yet.

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.

  • It's an odd rule. I have a similar case here, where the selected answer would need 13 upvotes for me to get the badge. (Current votes -2 vs 32 :-) – Bo Persson Mar 22 '13 at 12:25
  • @BoPersson, quite interesting :) – Saeed Mar 22 '13 at 12:39

Highest scoring answer that outscored an accepted answer with score of more than 10 by more than 2x

The accepted answer in that case does not have a score of more than 10. In other words the accepted answer must have at least a score of 11 and your answer at least a score of 23.

  • OK I thought my answer should have more than 10 score than accepted answer, really bad definition, I think should be edited. thanks. – Saeed Mar 22 '13 at 10:54
  • Yes, I think a few commas in that sentance wouldn't hurt. – juergen d Mar 22 '13 at 10:55
