The Socratic badge's criteria says

Ask a well-received question on 100 separate days, and maintain a positive question record. This badge can be awarded multiple times.

Unlike most of the other badges' criteria, this seems pretty subjective and not very clear as to what a "well received question" is. For instance, I have asked 65 questions, but according to the badge tracker only 54 of them are "well received". So what exactly qualifies as a "well received" question?

According to Meta.SE, the criteria is:

(total questions - negative questions - closed - deleted)/total questions >= 0.5

where each question can be counted more than once (i.e. a closed deleted negative question will counted as -3 total).

So any question with a positive score (that has not been closed or deleted) is considered well-received.
