I was just checking How Unsung am I? and I discovered that I currently have 6 unscored answers and 22.2% percent unscored.

How does the unscored answers count work?

  1. It counts all accepted answers I have at the present moment with 0 upvotes;

  2. It counts all answers that had no votes at the time they were accepted;

Let me give you an example: if the 1st option was right, that means that if one of my 6 0-scored accepted answers gets an upvote right now, it would decrease the Unsung count and make me work a little harder to get the badge.

Which one is it?

At the present moment. Otherwise it'd matter whether — in one common case — the OP accepted then upvoted, or upvoted then accepted. Think of it this way: if the answer reaches positive score, it's not really unsung anymore.

it only counts accepted answers or only counts answers not accepted? – aF. Jan 11 '12 at 15:33
@aF. Only accepted answers count. – Pops Jan 11 '12 at 15:45
