I now have 5 positive questions on five separate days (and I received no downvoted questions on at least 5 of these days). I have an positive overall question record. Why is the badge still stuck? :~?

Do I have to do some sort of pig ritual to get it?

As far as I know, badges are checked as part of a periodic maintenance routine.

The fifth day where you have asked a positive question was today. Your badge isn't going to show up the second you ask the fifth question, it will be applied when maintenance happens.

Additionally, as per this answer you need a positive question record, which apparently, you don't. Negative, closed, and deleted questions count against you, and if question is negatively voted, closed and deleted, it negates 3 good answers.

You might also be interested to know that you can actually track the badge's progress from your profile. See this answer for more info on what this looks like.

  • So a deleted downvoted question is worse than one which remains available. That would make more sense of things if it's true, as otherwise it would seem I should have a very positive question record. – What's in a Google Search May 31 '16 at 15:13

    @PeterDavidCarter-Poulsen according to the answer i linked to, a deleted downvoted question counts against you twice – Sam I am says Reinstate Monica May 31 '16 at 15:25
  • One might also think the arcane workings of this badge were designed to make you curious about it's nature... – What's in a Google Search May 31 '16 at 15:27
