# I think I might be missing the Tenacious badge

The explanation for the Tenacious badge says:

• Have at least five accepted answers with a score of zero, and have those zero-score accepted answers account for at least 20% of all your accepted answers

• Only accepted answers at least ten days old are considered

If I count correctly on my answers, I have 19 accepted answers in total. Out of these, 5 are 0-score not-self-accepted answers (and no CW either). The most recent of these 5 were answered on November the 15th at 13:10, which is twelve days ago.

Are my maths completely wrong, or does it just take some time for this badge to be awarded?

The requirement that seems to be in question is the `5` count. When you leave out your self-accepted asnwers (here, here and here).

This means you have:

• 19 accepted answers, but only 16 non-self-accepted
• 7 accepted answers with a 0 score, but only 5 non-self-accepted

This means your percentage is 5/16 or 31.25% so you're good there, but the difference in your question and the badge description is the wording (emphasis mine):

• Have at least five accepted answers with a score of zero, and have those zero-score accepted answers account for at least 20% of all your accepted answers

Whereas the badge says (again, emphasis mine):

Zero score accepted answers: more than 5 and 20% of total.

So it appears to be behaving like the description says, meaning you need a 6th answer to qualify. I think the problem is just that the description here is wrong, the badge page is (or at lest seems to be) correct.

Thanks Nick, didn't notice that minor difference. I guess this is also the same for Unsung Hero then, as it says more than 10 and 25% of total on the badge description, but at least ten accepted answers with a score of zero in the FAQ post. Seems like you're correct, but waiting for some moderator to confirm :) – Nailuj Nov 27 '10 at 13:32
"more than" is the correct version; I've fixed the description in the badge list question – balpha Nov 27 '10 at 15:08
