I was looking at the badges and I saw the "Curious", "Inquisitive" and "Socratic" badges;

Asked a well-received question on (x) separate days, and maintained a positive question record

What defines a "well-received question", and what defines a "positive question record"?

  • Pretty sure it just means "positively scored question" – Unionhawk Oct 3 '14 at 4:30
  • @Unionhawk He's not asking what it is, but what the definition exactly is. – William Edwards Oct 3 '14 at 18:02

You can read the full description of the badges here.


A well received question has a positive score, isn't closed and isn't deleted.

In order to maintain a positive question record:

  • For every question with a score of 0 or worse, you need to have a well received question.
  • For every closed question of yours, you need to have a well received question.
  • For every deleted question of yours, you need to have a well received question.

To be clear, if your question is non-positively scored, closed and deleted then you need three well-received questions to make up for it.

In order to count for the "well-received question on X separate days" criterion, you need to ask at least one well-received question and no non-well-received question on X separate days.

  • What about questions you deleted? Do they still contribute to the counter? – Ben Oct 3 '14 at 10:34
  • @Ben It seems that they count as a non-well-received question. – badp Oct 3 '14 at 14:25
  • Interesting. Thanks for the clarification :) – Ben Oct 3 '14 at 14:30
