I have gone to the Sticky that describes how Reputation and Badges are earned. I have done this three or four times since I have been on the board and never have quite grasped the formula. I just had a few spare minutes and decided I was going to give it a go again. I read it and reread it. While the formula is rather confusing, and I still am not sure of how I have gained my badge, I suppose the formula is fair. It reminds me of the NFL Passer Rating. Everyone agrees it is a fine standard to use, but no one knows how to compute it.
