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

If a question's a candidate for a Tumbleweed and someone edits it (retags, rewords, etc), does that edit nullify the badge? I'm assuming no, but not positive.

[Tumbleweed] Asked a question with no answers, no comments, and low views for a week.

Editing is neither an answer nor a comment. Just the view count goes up.

The question is about a badge. This answer doesn't seem to address that. – John K Jan 19 '10 at 18:23
@jdk: It does address that. It points out that editing counts as neither an answer nor a comment, but simply bumps the question to the top of the active list, potentially giving it more views. The number of views are a factor in awarding the badge. – gnostradamus Jan 19 '10 at 18:27
+1 Thanks for the clarification. My mind hadn't made that final link about edits being bumped up, so I didn't initially understand why edits translated into view counts. – John K Jan 21 '10 at 5:57

No, it should not -- as Georg pointed out none of the Tumbleweed metrics are directly related to editing.

Thanks for the confirmation. Accepting Georg's answer since he was first! – squillman Jan 19 '10 at 20:43
