I see that I was just awarded the "Inquisitive" badge. Looking at the explanation of this badge, it says:

Asked a well-received question on 30 separate days, and maintained a positive question record

I'm guessing that this requires at least 30 questions because the questions must be asked on 30 different days but I am unclear what makes a question "well-received" and what a positive question record means.

I'm guessing a positive question record means that I have less than x% of my questions with negative net votes but that is also unclear.

A set of new "asking questions" badges were rolled out yesterday. These are described more fully on MSE.

In a nutshell, "well-received" means

open, not deleted, and has a score > 0

And "positive question record" means

(total questions - negative questions - closed - deleted)/total questions >= 0.5

  • That helps a lot. Thanks! Why don't we add this to the tag description (I do not see a way to edit it)?

  • @earthling badge descriptions are global to all SE sites, suggestions for changing them should go to MSE
