[meta] Pundit Badge

Out of curiosity, what does it really take to earn the Pundit badge? I know what the description says, but only see that two people have earned it. I know there are a great deal more than two people that have left more than 10 comments. So what does it really take to earn that badge?

@CirqueDeSQLeil: You have three comments to this question. Just add seven more, and then we'll see what happens to your badges :)

maybe the comments have to be political?

@Kev Riley Yes, Thomas earned it a bit ago, but from the activity it is difficult to confirmn whether 10 comments per thread assessment is correct

The pundit badge is 10 comments overall. I believe that's different of how it worked on SX, but this was created before we even had the concept of score on comments. The thing is, whoever had more than 10 comments at export time never got the badge.

@hernani Do you mean upvoted 10 comments? I became a user of the site before the move, and I surely had more than 10 comments I left, but it is possible that I did not use "I like this comment" feature 10 times yet at the time. This is why I was surprised when one day I was greeted with the message that I have earned a pundit badge because it is described as "left 10 comments". If left 10 comments means used "I like this comment" feature 10 times then it might make sense. This is why we only have but 3 users who earned this badge.

@CirqueDeSQLeil - I actually read it as 'if you had 10 comments when we moved then you will never get the badge' - I guess it's not clear... :/

If you're looking for a SuperUser who's not a competitor to Red Gate, what about @FatherJack - he's an official "Friend of Red Gate", and has the 10k rep... ...perhaps this should be another question!

Thing is hernani said that if you had already written 10 or more comments before the move to OSQA then you would not get the badge?

@CirqueDeSQLeil - Yep, there are many many things that could be fixed. Let's count ourselves lucky that now the rep... sorry, karma display now shows k like SE. Because that was **really** important to me.

I believe that it means 10 comments per single thread, which could be either question or answer. This will explain why not too many people have it.

10 comments in one thread seems incredibly excessive. Its rare to see 10 comments total in a thread here, much less 10 by one person.

@CirqueDeSQLeil I remember when I received it I was kinda surprised as the message congratulating me with getting the bagde did not really coinside with my commenting activity at that time. Usually, when we get the badge, the info message becomes available right away.

would that mean that the question is a separate thread and each single answer is a separate thread?

@CirqueDeSQLeil This is very difficult to deduce from examining activity. Looks like this question has become a great brain teaser. Lets see if anyone can figure out correct answer to this one :)

@Oleg - thanks for the input. I guess we always have the option of testing on our end to try and figure it out.

i think it's just another very opaque or non functioning aspect of osqa. they've been working on it a lot judging from their comments on meta - but i must say i haven't seen a lot change - for example the editor has had chrome 6 issues for about a month... is anyone else slightly frustrated?

I haven't upgraded my chrome after I read you were having problems. Let me know when it is solved:-)

I'm looking at the source code for OSQA and spontaniously feel that I would have wanted it to be programmed in a human understandable language :)

It doesn't seem to be 10 comments on a question thread. It doesn't seem to be 10 comments on an answer thread. And it doesn't seem to be 10 cumulative comments on a question and it's associated answer(s) thread. It seems to be like the Tootsie Roll pop dilemma - the world may never know.
