  • In the site is said that, if you delete a question with the score of 3 or more you will get a badge. What does it mean by a question with the score of three or more? meta.askubuntu.com/questions/14364/…

    The question must have three or more upvotes, than it does downvotes, the "score" is the number left of the question, it must be, at least +3.

The score of a post is the sum of votes on it.

When someone* clicks the up arrow on a post (upvotes it) that increases its score by one.

When someone** clicks the down arrow on a post (downvotes it) that decreases its score by one.

This post has a score of 98:

post score is 98

When you have 1000 reputation points, you gain the ability to see the score breakdown by clicking on the score:

post score is 99-1


* this applies when the person voting has at least 15 reputation; otherwise the vote is anonymous***.
** this applied when the person voting has at least 125 reputation; otherwise the vote is anonymous***.
*** anonymous votes are recorded and information about them can be found, for example in the public data dump, but it does not affect the post score.

  • Do anonymous votes become normal votes when a user passes the 15/125 rep mark?
