I guess there is a grammatical error in the badge list:

[badge:Sportsmanship] Up voted 100 answers on questions where an answer of yours has a positive score

Well, I am not a native speaker, but I guess it should be either "Upvoted" or "Voted up"?


"Upvoted" and "Voted up" would be fine, but "Up voted" is not correct. Take a look at this question “Upvote” vs. “up vote” vs. “up-vote” at English Language & Usage.

I´ve extracted some info from the accepted answer.

Within the nomenclature of this site, upvote seems to be the accepted term.

Otherwise, you could go for up-vote or vote up but not up vote.


Up vote with spaces does not work however, because it confuses the syntax of the sentence.

  • My up-vote goes to hyphenating it. upvote is not a word.

    @Jamiec the past tense up-voted looks weired and i think up-vote looks more like a noun, while upvote looks more like a verb.

  • Thanks Jehof, and thanks for linking the resource! I am glad my non-native feeling was right!
