According to definition of Socratic badge:

Ask a well-received question on 100 separate days, and maintain a positive question record

I've discussed it before and I came to know that I might get it after asking 3 more questions (97 currently). But I don't want people laugh at me if I don't get it. So I want to understand the definition. It seems a bit tricky/mathematical.

I'm also doubtful because in my profile, next badge is mentioned as Fanatic, not Socratic. After all, I feel it would be too easy to get this award, which has not been awarded before, by just asking 100 questions. So there might be some terms and conditions.

    All your questions need to be positive in score. So no negatives.

  • @joojaa so that way I'll need to count positive 100 questions? Or new continuous 100 positive questions?

  • And 0 votes will be counted or not?

Well-received question = At least one upvote on a question. So question with 0 votes won't be considered well received

Positive question record doesn't just mean 100 questions without any downvotes. It also involves other questions like the closed ones, downvoted etc. And calculated by considering all questions.
