I posted to Mi Yodeya Meta 4 hours ago, and did not receive the badge on that site.

Are there any hidden requirements for the badge (post a positively-scored answer?) that I need to fulfill?


See Why didn't (or did) I or some other user get a hat although the requirements were (or weren't) fulfilled?:

most hats that require creating content, especially questions and answers, have some requirements that may not be mentioned in the hat description. Generally this involves questions/answers having a positive score (i.e. getting at least one upvote), not being closed/deleted, etc.

Your answer has a score of -1 right now.

    So for this hat, [effortless] voting will give it to you, but [actually going and] posting an unpopular opinion won't? Just getting that straight.
