Are the maximum number of views allowed for tumbleweed-qualifying questions different between different members of the Stack Overflow trilogy?
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
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 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?
