I started a bounty for this question which got 11 downvotes: On the subject of "bring up" and "raise"

My question is: Is there a badge for a user who starts a bounty on a question which has more than ten downvotes?

If there isn't, do you think that such a badge is needed?


Badges are designed to encourage and reward certain kinds of behaviors in our user community. There is no badge for specifically starting a bounty on a highly-downvoted question, although you can get badges for starting bounties.

A massively downvoted question usually means it is not desired by the community. Putting a bounty on such a question seems like the opposite of something we want to encourage, so it's pretty unlikely that StackExchange management would create a badge for that kind of thing.

So, no and no.
