I voted on more than 100 competing answers. Even then I have not received Sportsmanship badge.
This is my profile Sachin Mhetre.
My account was merged with another account. Is this a reason for not getting sporsmanship badge?

    Sportsmanship sounds like one hell of a query and probably isn't executed that frequently.

How long have you waited?

There is a job that runs every now and then and hands out badges. Wait for it. Should be a day-ish.

Also, are you sure they were competing answers? By competing, we mean that they were answers to a question which you have also have an upvoted answer (I'm telling you this since we had a recent meta-post where someone was confused on this)

Anyway, how did you know that there are 100? Did you count? (there's no competing vote metric offered by the system)

  • The key is that your answer has to be upvoted as well

  • @Chris whoops, forgot to mention. Thanks! Apr 26, 2012 at 8:09
  • Its been more than 2-3 weeks. And also I counted upvotes on answers, they are more than 100. Apr 26, 2012 at 8:19
  • @sachin your answers need upvotes as well. Apr 26, 2012 at 11:51

You only have 28 answers, and only 18 of those have any up-votes.

Have you really voted for 100 answers on those 18 questions?

Are there even 100 competing answers to vote for?

  • I think I am getting wrong meaning about competing answers. I was thinking that Competing answer means, other answers on the question which you have also answered. Apr 26, 2012 at 10:57
  • Was I wrong? Whats the competing answers means? Apr 26, 2012 at 10:58
  • @SachinMhetre - A competing answer is another answer to a question you have answered.

  • So I was right... But does this mean that, my answers also have upvotes? Apr 26, 2012 at 11:00

    @SachinMhetre - yes your answers must be upvoted as well

  • Ohhhh... Sorry, I didnt know about that. Now I'll keep it in mind. Thanks for correcting my knowledge. Apr 26, 2012 at 11:03
  • This is little off topic, but is it a good habit to write name(@xxx) in comment? Apr 26, 2012 at 11:05
  • @SachinMhetre - the @name directs the comment at that person so they get notified in their inbox.
