However as demonstrated here the wording isn't clear. I know I've made the mistake myself. I'm sure there is a better wording out there.

  • I suspect it's kinda by-design to have badge descriptions worded vaguely.

    @Mehrdad: If you are using badges to try and encourage good behavior, it would probably help if people had a clear understanding of what the desired behavior was.

  • TheTXI: I'm a proponent of lucid wording in badge descriptions. In fact, I posted a suggestion for clarifying Populist on user voice at the time it was introduced. I just mentioned it's very likely to be declined.

  • I agree with the sentiment, wouldn't class this as a bug though Sep 11, 2009 at 22:50
  • Is it necessary that the answer be accepted after it gets the upvotes? That's the only reason I can see why I wouldn't get the badge here. Aug 11, 2018 at 20:40

You were the first to answer a question. Your answer was accepted and received a score of at least +10. This badge can be awarded multiple times.

This makes more sense because it stresses that you answered first, was accepted, and reached a score of +10 (the whole ten upvote thing is very confusing and is not true. 9 upvotes + 1 downvote + 1 more upvote still makes +9 and you won't get the badge).

Edit: Added the multiple times at the end because I forgot.
