By reading the description of the conditions needed to earn the Curious (or Inquisitive or Socratic) badge on the Help Center, it is still quite unclear to me what conditions are needed to earn it.

I even checked the profiles of users who earned them, but I wasn't able to deduce how it works.

Could somebody clarify or explain it to me, please?


For Curious you need to ask 5 questions on 5 separate days which have a positive score. For Inquisitive, the number of question and days is 30 and for Socratic they are 100.

You wouldn't receive the Curious badge if you asked 5 questions in the space of 1 hour. The badges are to gauge if you are returning to the site and continuing to ask questions day-by-day.

  • For Curious, does it mean 1 question a days for 5 days, or can it be 2 questions the 1st day and 3 the 5th ?
