I have been after the elusive Populist badge for a long time. It has been almost a year now and it still remains elusive as the candidate answer is shy of one vote and I am getting desperate.
While I am confident of the answer's quality, I am not sure if asking people to consider upvoting the answer (if they feel it deserves it of course) is something which is honorable or fair or sportsman-like behavior.
While I most certainly want the badge very much, I don't want to engage in anything which is unfair in any sense, to get it.
Can I ask people to consider my answer? Or is tooting your own horn considered gaming the system?
rule is actually > 11
and the test is > 2 * 11 on the post as well.
The minimum number of votes you would need to get it, is 23.
So it appears the Populist badge is way out of my reach.
