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

Not quite like necromancer I think there should be silver and gold badges for answering a number of questions (5/50) that previously have been "awarded" the tumbleweed status.

This might require that questions get automagically tagged with a system tag called tumbleweed so that people can find these kind of questions.

Just because I didn't get an answer doesn't mean I'd wouldn't appreciate one even 1 year later. I know one might say that "why should I answer a question so late if there's no guarantee for an acceptance?" etc, but I guess you can choose to do so based on the "askers" profile.

Thanks for your time

Edit I guess you can find these questions by clicking on the tumbleweed badge as Borror0 pointed out, but might not be as obvious as searching for a tumbleweed tag. Still my badge request/suggestion remains

"This might require that questions get automagically tagged with a system tag called tumbleweed so that people can find these kind of questions." You mean like this one? – Borror0 Mar 2 '11 at 13:32
    
@Borror0 Tumbleweed is one-time only, so it could only ever mark one question per user. As well, that's stored with the author, not the question itself. – Grace Note Mar 2 '11 at 13:39
    
And also how could I search for questions that are both tumbleweed and Java or whatever the "Hunters" specialties are – Moak Mar 2 '11 at 13:45

The revival badge already covers this ground. I don't think there is a need for an other badge.
