Are the maximum number of views allowed for tumbleweed-qualifying questions different between different members of the Stack Overflow trilogy?

If the question in question is "Mac equivalent of FinePrint’s ability to merge print jobs", then it looks like the upvote on the question, as well as being marked a favourite, discounts it from becoming a Tumbleweed.

Now what you have to do is track down that person who clicked on the star and harangue them for denying you a Tumbleweed badge.

I should've done this to that dude who answered my probable tumbleweed-worthy question. – Randell Aug 17 '09 at 2:20
The tumbleweed criteria don't mention marking as favorite or upvotes. – Andrew Grimm Aug 18 '09 at 7:44
was right: the upvote killed it. – Andrew Grimm Aug 16 '10 at 7:00

While I don't know definitively, I'm guessing not. Why?

There's a question I asked on superuser that hasn't yet earned tumbleweed, even though I think it has had fewer views than one that earned tumbleweed in stackoverflow. Also, they don't specify how many views disqualifies you for tumbleweed, and I assume they're hiding that info for a reason. – Andrew Grimm Aug 17 '09 at 2:11

I don't imagine that the criteria are any different. Are you sure that the question in question has gone on for the correct amount time?

It's 15 days old (17 if you count from Horses' birthday), and it should be for one week. – Andrew Grimm Aug 18 '09 at 7:41
