I see that in all Stack Exchange sites (at least the ones I checked) there are badges for Popular, Notable, and Famous Question, when it gets to 1k, 2.5k, and 10k views, respectively.
My question is why are there no similar badges for Answers also? Is it because the question is the one that caused the answers to also be seen?
I suspect that to be able to give those badges we should be able to quantify the views of an answer. Is it ok to assume that if some Question has
x views then all answers from that question also have
x views? Or only those highly upvoted or accepted?
Another option could be to count the views that Question gained since the posting of that answer, and assign that to be the number of views of a specific answer (this will also prevent new answers on famous posts to instantly get the badge). However I do not know how complex this type of queries could be.
