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

So I had asked this question on Meta Superuser as to why I didn't get a Tumbleweed badge. Now the answer is right, but, it doesn't say anywhere in the description for Tumbleweed on any of the Stack Exchange sites that votes early on influence whether you get the Tumbleweed badge. All it says is:

Asked a question with no answers, no comments, and low views for a week

As you can see nothing about up-votes. Thoughts on this matter?

I changed it to

Asked a question with no votes, no answers, no comments, and low views for a week

I think the initial rationale would have been that it has to have been at least viewed a few times to garner a few up-votes.

Now, should a low-view yet up-voted question still be qualifiable for a tumbleweed, in the spirit of what it should mean? I think so.
