Summary: My question is not about why I have not got the badge, but rather the misleading progress display.
There are quite some posts about this topic. Most of them are marked either duplicate or closed. This topic is slightly different here is why,
To get curious badge a user must Ask a well-received question on 5 separate days, and maintain a positive question record. Agreed!
The formula to calculate if I am eligible for this badge is
total questions - negative questions - closed - deleted)/total questions >= 0.5. Totally fine!
The best example what I can give why I think the count is shown wrong is I can't have 7 apples out of 5! How can I have 29/5 on the badge? I think the way the numbers are displaying is misleading.
Here are the few questions which talk about this issue but they are answered with you don't have +ve track. This answer doesn't really help. Again, how can I have 29 apples out of 5?
