What exactly is the Unsung hero badge's requirement. The info text says:

Zero score accepted answers: more than 10 and 25% of total.

The first part is pretty clear, 10 accepted answers with a zero score, but the second part 25% of total. What exactly is total, total answers, total accepted answers or ...?

It says more then 10 though so wouldn't that mean you need 11. If it said 10 or more it would be 10. Maybe @Jeff Atwood could give us some clarification? – Gage Jul 15 '10 at 14:20
@Gage: Yeah, I'm wondering the same with Tenacious; whether it requires 5 or 6 answers. – palswim Sep 3 '10 at 5:19

Accepted answers = Total accepted answers that are not self accept and not community wiki or deleted.

Both 10 and 25% refer to "Accepted Answers"

So, to clarify, if I have 20 accepted answers (as outlined above), 10 non-accepted answers, and 50000 self-accepted answers, I would get the badge, correct? – Devin Burke Aug 30 '11 at 21:20
yes self accepts are totally ignored – waffles Aug 30 '11 at 23:13
@waffles Can we change the wording then? "Zero score accepted answers: more than 10 and 25% of total accepted." – Duncan May 27 '14 at 9:49
