Riddler badge:

Awarded to those who have asked a question with 3 or more points, no (upvoted?) answers in a month and which remains open.

This is not to motivate people to ask unanswerable questions (those will be closed anyway), but is intended to be a compensation for not having your question answered.

Riddle Solver badge:

Awarded to answers to the question who've gotten the Riddler badge and get accepted.


There is already the Tumbleweed badge, a consolation for having no answers and low views on your question. But not if you have it upvoted.

On the other end of that is the Necromancer for those who answer a question over 60 days later and garner at least 5 votes.

  • Hmm, they are similar but not equal in intent. Although there might be enough overlap between the existing and the proposed to make the latter unworthy of consideration. – Vinko Vrsalovic Sep 16 '09 at 0:21

    Necroweed sounds utterly vicious. Cost much? – random Sep 16 '09 at 2:03
