What are the technical criterion for a question to be defined as well-received? I am looking for the definition in context of the following badges:

  • Curious: Ask a well-received question on 5 separate days, and maintain a positive question record.

  • Inquisitive: Ask a well-received question on 30 separate days, and maintain a positive question record.

  • Socratic: Ask a well-received question on 100 separate days, and maintain a positive question record. This badge can be awarded multiple times.

From the FAQ on Meta Stack Exchange, What are the badges I can earn on each site, and what are the exact criteria for earning each badge?:

Curious

  • bronze; awarded once
  • Asked a well-received question on 5 separate days, and maintained a positive question record

Inquisitive

  • silver; awarded once
  • Asked a well-received question on 30 separate days, and maintained a positive question record

Socratic

  • gold; awarded multiple times
  • Asked a well-received question on 100 separate days, and maintained a positive question record
    • This badge can be earned multiple times, once every 100 qualifying days (e.g. once you accrue 200 qualifying days, you'll earn it a second time, provided you still have a positive question record).

Additional criteria for this badge family:

  • There are four different counts that are tracked when calculating the criteria for this badge:
    • Positive: Number of questions asked on this day that have a score greater than 0.
    • Negative: Number of questions asked on this day that have a score less than 0.
    • Closed: Number of questions asked on this day that are currently closed and the current closure date occurred within 60 days of being asked.
    • Deleted: Number of questions asked on this day that are currently deleted and the current deletion date occurred within 60 days of being asked.
  • Any day that has at least one Positive question and also has no Negative, Closed, or Deleted questions counts as a "qualifying day" which increments the counter.
  • A positive question record means you don't have too many Closed, Negative, or Deleted questions overall. The formula is (TotalQuestions - Negative - Closed - Deleted) / TotalQuestions ≥ 0.5. Questions that qualify as Negative and Closed and Deleted count three times in this calculation!
