For each the description is:

Answer voted up N times

Where N is a threshold for the badge. In reality, however, the badge is achieved when upvotes - downvotes passes that threshold. Perhaps a better wording would be:

Answer upvotes exceeds downvotes by N

Along those lines, what about related badges for uncontested answers?

    I would suggest making the badge request and this wording bug in separate questions. – Earlz May 7 '10 at 20:45

Ok, changed from

voted up (n) times


score of (n) or more


I would rather say it should be somethign like Answer has a net vote count of N. But yes, the current wording is confusing and there have been questions made about it before "I'm suppose to have this badge for my +10/-2 answer!"
