I'm a little confused as to the conditions for the populist badge. My understanding is that any answer that has a score of at least 11 and more than double the accepted answer earns it. But how come, for example, @chaos doesn't have one for this question?

The score of the accepted answer must be at least 11, and so the badge-earner's answer must have a score of 23 or more.

There's an ambiguity in the description of Populist for where the prepositional phrase ("with a score of more than 10") adjoins into the sentence. This is the correct parse:

  • Answer outscored [an accepted answer with score of more than 10] by more than 2x

When in doubt, always check the List of all badges with full descriptions on the meta Meta.
