The post explains well that you get the curious badge when you have a positive question record:

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!

Then this request with indicates that the new formula is:

(total questions - negative questions - closed - early deleted)/total questions >= 0.5

Whereas early deleted refers to questions deleted in less than 60 days.

On my profile on skeptics.se, I have asked 23 questions among which 2 are closed and 1 downvoted with no early deleted questions:

It is good to mention that that the early deleted questions page refer to questions deleted over the past 60 days:

Answers tabs that'll list the given user's deleted questions or answers, currently limited to those posted in the past 60 days.

So, if you do the math:

(23 - 6 - 3 - 0)/23 = 0.6 > 0.5

Also, it is obvious that the other requirement is met (Ask on separate days):

So, why am I not being awarded the curious badge?


That page only lists questions deleted in the past 60 days, not questions which were deleted within 60 days of being posted. You have 9 deleted questions, of which 4 were negatively scored, 6 were closed and all 9 were early deleted.

Your score:

32 - 5 - 8 - 9 = 10 / 32 = 0.3125
