The purpose of the example questions is to define what is on-topic, right? I notice that there are badges for high-scoring questions—but none for those ever-so-important edge-case questions. Thus, I propose the following badge:

[bronze/silver] Edge Case: Example question closed as off-topic with 5 or more score

I would also like to propose that this badge be available multiple times—because, well, the more the better!
Additional note: I notice there is no tag here. Why isn't there?

Thank you for the suggestion. Your idea has merit, but the Area 51 system is in the sunset of its development so we will not be adding additional features/badges to this system until a next-generation system has been developed. You can read the latest on the future of site creation here:

What's going on with Area 51?

It is highly unlikely that a next-generation system will have a concept of "example questions", so I am going to politely decline this feature request so not to leave it unanswered. Thank you again.
