Currently the Teacher badge's description is:

Answer a question with score of 1 or more

This is a little ambiguous - does it mean I just need to answer a question that has a score of 1 or more?

Could we change it to something a little clearer? Say, for example:

First answer with score of 1 or more

This would bring it in line with the Student badge.

    Your suggested wording seems potentially ambiguous too: it could be misinterpreted as saying that only the first answer to each question qualifies for that badge. (Compare e.g. with Enlightened, which actually does have that requirement.) Still, I agree that the wording should probably be improved somehow. – Ilmari Karonen Nov 16 '15 at 1:01

    "Answer score of 1 or more" and group it with Nice Answer, Good Answer – Glenn Randers-Pehrson Nov 16 '15 at 1:26

I agree. The wording really actually means that answer a question in which the answer gets a score of 1 but it took me a while to understand the true meaning of the badge because the wording was so confusing. The summary should be straight-forward to allow users to immediately know how to get the badges.

Your summary should work nicely and I love to see a connection between Teacher and Student as well. Also, the Teacher badge's description seems to be able to be earned more than one time so the word "First" in the beginning should clarify the summary a little bit more.

  • Seems to be worse than that: awarded to having an answer that momentarily had a positive score. – JDługosz May 31 '16 at 8:37
