How long do Tenacious and Unsung Hero badges take to be awarded?

I was just having a look at my questions today and I'm wondering why the Unsung hero badge hasn't been awarded.

I have 14 zero-score accepted answers (not included self-answered questions) for a total of 45 accepted answers. It's more than 10 zero score accepted answers and about 30% of total. So should the badge have been awarded or am I missing something?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Are all the answers older than 10 days? That's a requirement not mentioned on the Badges page to prevent users quick-posting to get it. – waiwai933 Aug 26 '11 at 5:48
In general, whenever you're thinking you have earned a badge but haven't seen it awarded yet, the best thing to do is wait at least 24-48 hours. – Cody Gray Aug 26 '11 at 6:09

If you meet the criterion according to the query described here, then I think the answer is time.

You need to wait at least 10 days. Some of your newest zero score answers are only 2 or 3 days old (and haven't really had a chance to get votes yet).

thanks for your answer, you can remove the questions. I guess I indeed need to wait for a few days. – this.lau_ Aug 26 '11 at 5:58
Yep. Sorry. I've spent those days too & inadvertently things get one friggin' up-vote. bah. Makes me wonder if these badges were ill-conceived. – M. Tibbits Aug 26 '11 at 6:11
