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

The Sportsmanship badge is awarded for voting on 100 answers competing with one's own. Do the votes I cast count toward this badge when either of the following circumstances are true?

  1. The requestor has already accepted my answer
  2. The requestor has already accepted someone else's answer

The acceptance of an answer is unrelated to the Sportsmanship badge logic. It's very simple:

  • you have an answer posted to the question with a positive score
  • you have upvoted one of the other answers

If you have a hundred answers upvoted a hundred competing answers that match these criteria, then you will receive the badge.
