Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Projector control - RS232 / USB?

The above question has been open for well over a week now, it's got no comments, no answers and only 23 views or so (judging by Jeff's answer here that shouldn't be the factor anyway!)

It does have one close vote though, that's the only thing I can think of?

All the other questions about this seem to have been resolved when the user already had the tumbleweed badge - I however don't!

Any ideas?

I think this badge calculation only runs every so often. Perhaps you need to wait for a few more days before it will show up? – M. Tibbits Aug 3 '11 at 19:27
The question received an upvote. It looks to me like that vote was cast on the day the question was asked. Perhaps I'm reading the timeline incorrectly? – Pops Aug 3 '11 at 19:28
@M. Tibbits I did wonder this, but I would've thought it'd be every couple of days at least? I may well be mistaken though. – berry120 Aug 3 '11 at 19:28
Note the description here – M. Tibbits Aug 3 '11 at 19:28
@berry - Posting here just risks getting more views. And the odd upvote... – Bo Persson Aug 3 '11 at 19:31
Ah, sorry it's me - I didn't read the description properly and missed the vote bits out! False alarm (as per usual I'd guess!) I'd query why the vote takes out the badge though? There's still no feedback to the question which can be just as annoying :) – berry120 Aug 3 '11 at 19:37
@Bo I don't hugely care about the badge, I was more curious as to why it wasn't awarded - as for views Jeff said that's almost never the limiting factor anyway, so...:) – berry120 Aug 3 '11 at 19:38
I am still curious whether close votes matter for the badge, though. I'd think that the devs would have assumed that any post receiving a close vote would have also gotten at least a downvote or a comment. – Pops Aug 3 '11 at 19:42
Perhaps, though (as you've probably seen) that isn't the case with the above question. Personally I think especially if there's no comments there already a close vote should be forced to leave a comment, but that's another matter entirely! – berry120 Aug 3 '11 at 19:43

Your question has one upvote. This disqualifies it from the Tumbleweed badge. Sorry!
