If you visit the badges page, you'll find out, that for the badge 'Vox Populi', which has been awarded 3 times, you need to have "Used the maximum 40 votes in a day".

Today I reached the daily vote limit of 30 votes. So it seems the vote limit was lowered after some time, or maybe the badges-page is a copy from SO, and the number has not been adapted.

  • Question a) Which of it is it?
  • Question b) Is it still possible to reach the badge, because it is bound to a value in the settings, which is 30 today?

Something needs to be fixed - either only the badges page, or badges page and the treshold to reach the vox-populi badge, or something else I didn't think of.

You'll notice that suffrage is bronze badge awarded for using all 30 votes in one day.

The deal is that there are 10 "extra" votes if you are voting enough on questions. I wasn't clear on when you have to use them to have them qualify for the "extra"s, but it seems to require that you have cast 1 in 3 votes (so far this day?) for questions (so at least 10 of the first 30?) to be allowed to cast the spare ones.

  • \$\begingroup\$ I'm not sure about the numbers, since Justin says, that it is set in stone, when I reach the N votes remaining warning, which is normally 5 votes, so I expect, that if I'm above the threshold all the time, I get it at 35 votes, but if I have no vote on questions, I get it at 25 votes. \$\endgroup\$ Commented Jan 12, 2012 at 5:12

    \$\begingroup\$ @userunknown For each question you vote on, you get an additional vote, up to 40. \$\endgroup\$ Commented Jan 16, 2012 at 6:01
