This question already has an answer here:

I saw that it has been already reported that also they have earned courious badge but the badge has not been given. but their answers say that they must wait a day and the badge will be awarded.

In my case its 8/5 and it was 5/5 long time ago and I have never received a message telling that I have earned it. its just telling me that the next badge to be awarded is Curious badge.

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.


If you click on the badge in your profile it will tell you that you need a positive question record and that you don't currently have one.

Excerpted from this answer

A positive question record means you don't have too many closed, downvoted or deleted questions, overall. The formula is (total questions - negative questions - closed - deleted)/total questions >= 0.5. Questions that have been downvoted and closed and deleted count three times in this calculation!

You have at least one deleted question, although I can't see whether it's downvoted or not.

  • well I have 10 questions, all with positive or 0 votes (13 up votes in total) no down voted, no deleted and no closed question. there is only 1 duplicate – Ashkan Mobayen Khiabani May 14 '15 at 21:47
  • Only moderators can search for your deleted questions. Almost everyone says they haven't got any but in actual fact they have. If you go here webmasters.stackexchange.com/users/11815/… there should be a deleted recent questions link at the bottom of the page but that will (as it says) only show you recent stuff. – Robert Longson May 14 '15 at 21:51
  • I'm a developer and I have just asked few question at webmasters.stackexchange.com, right now I have been 71 days in a row online in stackoverflow while I barely visit webmasters once in a month. I'm sure I have done nothing but asking and getting the answer and get away. I have not deleted any questions – Ashkan Mobayen Khiabani May 14 '15 at 21:58
  • yes its deleted by moderator and also closed before deletion. and it has no upvote or downvote and still there should be positive. you know I don't actually care about a bronze medal but I wanted to make sure that there is no bug in the site as I really love and care about the stackexchange collection – Ashkan Mobayen Khiabani May 14 '15 at 22:02
  • well I said I haven't deleted any question (that still I'm insisting) I didn't know moderators just delete a question that is not spam (it was closed because it was very localized and deleted I think for the same reason) – Ashkan Mobayen Khiabani May 14 '15 at 22:05
  • All deleted questions you asked count, whether you deleted them or somone else did. – Robert Longson May 14 '15 at 22:06
  • thanks a lot as I said I thought moderator only delete a question only if it is a spam. Thanks a lot for the nice information – Ashkan Mobayen Khiabani May 14 '15 at 22:08
  • Users with 10K reputation can delete questions, also negatively voted questions get deleted by the system eventually if they have no answers. – Robert Longson May 14 '15 at 22:10
  • @RobertLongson Users with 10K reputation can delete any question that is closed but not locked. The question score does not matter. They cannot vote to delete non-closed question. – user259867 May 14 '15 at 22:11
