A few weeks ago, I answered the questions

  1. How to sum up elements of a C++ vector? (my answer)
  2. Is there a better way to initialize an allocated array in C++? (my answer)

How far am I from getting the Guru badge for the above two questions? Will I get Guru if the count of upvotes is +41 or +40 (including all the upvotes and downvotes)?

Can anyone get a Guru badge for an answer marked as community wiki?

  • You are 5 and 8 votes respectively getting the badge (as of the time of writing).

Guru is awarded if you have a total score (ups minus downs) of 40 or more (so 5 and 8 more net upvotes for you currently).

It can be awarded to community wiki.
