We can use the Advanced Search feature to find questions with a specific score. If I were to use the function to find posts with say 9, 24, 99, or 39 (for accepted answers) and give them an up-vote to award the post with a badge, would this be considered a form of voting fraud?

I would not be targeting specific users, just the score. I would also give evaluation to each post and not blindly up-vote every post with those scores.

    are you asking if the votes are proper, or are you asking if you found a loophole in the voting-fraud-detection algorithm? – KutuluMike Nov 22 '16 at 19:53
  • @KutuluMike If they are proper. I like the badge system, and would like to see more awarded. Again, I will evaluate the post before voting. – Skooba Nov 22 '16 at 20:12

This is fine as long as you evaluate each post for its content.

There is nothing in the relevant help center articles which suggest that this would be fraud.

Blindly upvoting every post with such score wouldn't be OK, but as long as you read each of them to determine whether it's worth an upvote, I don't see anything wrong with that.
