I voted on more than 100 competing answers. Even then I have not received Sportsmanship badge.
This is my profile Sachin Mhetre.
My account was merged with another account. Is this a reason for not getting sporsmanship badge?

Sportsmanship sounds like one hell of a query and probably isn't executed that frequently. – a cat Apr 26 '12 at 7:45

How long have you waited?

There is a job that runs every now and then and hands out badges. Wait for it. Should be a day-ish.

Also, are you sure they were competing answers? By competing, we mean that they were answers to a question which you have also have an upvoted answer (I'm telling you this since we had a recent meta-post where someone was confused on this)

Anyway, how did you know that there are 100? Did you count? (there's no competing vote metric offered by the system)

The key is that your answer has to be upvoted as well – ChrisF Apr 26 '12 at 8:07
@Chris whoops, forgot to mention. Thanks! – Manishearth Apr 26 '12 at 8:09
Its been more than 2-3 weeks. And also I counted upvotes on answers, they are more than 100. – Sachin Mhetre Apr 26 '12 at 8:19
@sachin your answers need upvotes as well. – Manishearth Apr 26 '12 at 11:51

You only have 28 answers, and only 18 of those have any up-votes.

Have you really voted for 100 answers on those 18 questions?

Are there even 100 competing answers to vote for?

I think I am getting wrong meaning about competing answers. I was thinking that Competing answer means, other answers on the question which you have also answered. – Sachin Mhetre Apr 26 '12 at 10:57
Was I wrong? Whats the competing answers means? – Sachin Mhetre Apr 26 '12 at 10:58
@SachinMhetre - A competing answer is another answer to a question you have answered. – ChrisF Apr 26 '12 at 10:58
So I was right... But does this mean that, my answers also have upvotes? – Sachin Mhetre Apr 26 '12 at 11:00
@SachinMhetre - yes your answers must be upvoted as well – ChrisF Apr 26 '12 at 11:01
Ohhhh... Sorry, I didnt know about that. Now I'll keep it in mind. Thanks for correcting my knowledge. – Sachin Mhetre Apr 26 '12 at 11:03
This is little off topic, but is it a good habit to write name(@xxx) in comment? – Sachin Mhetre Apr 26 '12 at 11:05
@SachinMhetre - the @name directs the comment at that person so they get notified in their inbox. – ChrisF Apr 26 '12 at 11:06
Thank you again... – Sachin Mhetre Apr 26 '12 at 11:07
@SachinMhetre, you should accept this answer – Tomas Jun 10 '13 at 13:03
