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

My user stats show 99 accepted answers and 22 of them have 0 upvotes (which makes > 20%)

None of these are self-accepted or CW.

Anyone know why I dont have the Tenacious badge yet?


and I did email the team 4 days back, but no response there - hence the question here.

Sorry about not responding earlier, to Jeff credit he actually forwarded the email to me. So I take the blame ... sorry. – waffles Oct 6 '10 at 7:07
Man I want to upvote some of your recent answers ... but I also do not want to take your tenacious badge away. – waffles Oct 6 '10 at 7:11

I ran this on your user id on yesterdays data.

   select a.OwnerUserId as Id, 
    sum(case when a.Score = 0 then 0 else 1 end) as [Non Zero Score Answers],  
    sum(case when a.Score = 0 then 1 else 0 end) as [Zero Score Answers]
  from Posts q
  join Posts a on a.Id = q.AcceptedAnswerId 
  where a.CommunityOwnedDate is null and a.OwnerUserId is not null
   and a.OwnerUserId <> isnull(q.OwnerUserId,-1)
   and a.CreationDate < getdate() - 10
   and a.OwnerUserId = 289396
  group by a.OwnerUserId
  having sum(case when a.Score = 0 then 1 else 0 end) > 5

It shows you have 17 accepted zero score answers and a total of 76 non zero score answers.

The calculation excludes all posts that are less than 10 days old, it is possible you will get tenacious in a few days.

My calculations show that you may get it in 4 days if nobody upvotes your accepted answers. This is a nasty hard badge to get when you have so many answers.

wow, thats much lesser than the stats on my own user page or the /reputation url, thanks for running this. – JoseK Oct 6 '10 at 7:04
and by the way, 17/76 is 22% as well – JoseK Oct 6 '10 at 7:05
@Jose its ... 17 / (17 + 76) :) – waffles Oct 6 '10 at 7:06
@waffles: Indeed, duh! – JoseK Oct 6 '10 at 7:45
@Mark: Pah! We'll just downvote'em back. – Charles Stewart Oct 6 '10 at 11:06
@Mark, you're playing right into his hands! – Pops Oct 6 '10 at 16:31
You think he cares more about rep than badges? Pah! – Mark C Oct 6 '10 at 22:25
