What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 131 Stack Exchange communities.

Just curious whether the process takes a while, and whether it scrapes through history to determine if it was once valid or not. Currently, I have 6 0-vote accepted answers and 20 1+-vote answers (on SO), and that makes it > 5 and > 20% but not for long if voting goes up or down from here. ;-P

Update:

Special thanks to Grace Note for pointing out the link to follow. I upgraded this to a bug because it's been 48 hours during which the criteria supposedly were met. 6 0-votes, 20-23 1+ votes during the whole period. The criteria only last so long, so it may go out of scope soon. If it only checks every 3 days, I'm not sure if that's intentional or a bug.

  • Only accepted answers older than 10 days are considered (otherwise tons of new users would get this)
  • As long as they are not self accept
  • And they are not wiki
  • And they are not deleted

so is it retroactive, as in "if it was true 7 days ago"? this is one of those odd badges that if i don't manage to achieve it now, it's not likely to ever happen, no matter how many obscure things i help people with. :-) –  eruciform Jul 21 '10 at 2:59

not retroactive ... its meant as a consolation badge for people who participate in obscure tags that don't get any upvotes –  waffles Jul 21 '10 at 3:09
    
@waffles - huh, did they change the name of this to "tenacious"? i just got it, by the way. :-) –  eruciform Jul 28 '10 at 19:32
    
@eruciform, yep, same badge, new name, see blog –  Pops Oct 13 '10 at 18:08

@yahelc thanks and oops ... corrected that –  waffles Dec 1 '10 at 23:15

@waffles- to be clear, self accepted answers that would be beneficial in earning the badge are not considered nor are they, beneficial or not, considered into the total number of accepted answers. –  Chief Two Pencils Feb 16 '13 at 22:35

I was also kinda stumped by this, since I got the 'Tenacious' badge at a weird moment, and now also I meet the 'Unsung Hero' requirements but didn't get it yet. I think the badge descriptions need to be clarified some, and a link to this answer added. –  Niels Keurentjes May 6 '13 at 11:50
