Can someone make a query on Stack Exchange Data Explorer for users to track their progress on Unsung Hero badge? I mean, in some queries, I saw some input box for users to input custom data for queries. What I am telling is about a solution, where there is an input (what i said before) for users to input their User ID and fetch data based on that. Since Unsung Hero badge requires "Zero score accepted answers: more than 10 and 25% of total", is this possible with just a single query or need 2 separate queries for "Zero score accepted answers" and "Total number of answers" (both should not count or consider and must skip questions by the same user)?

I hope you got what I meant. I am not an expert in Data Explorer queries. Can someone take the challenge?


I believe this will be really useful for our community.

    I can't believe that I'm asking this on Meta, but what have you tried? Data explorer is there for people that want to run queries and mine interesting things. If you're having a problem using it, we'd love to help .. but where are you stuck? – Tim Post Aug 20 '12 at 16:23
  • Sorry - I didn't realise the link was broken try this - data.stackexchange.com/stackoverflow/query/6607/… – ChrisF Aug 20 '12 at 16:24
  • Or there's this data.stackexchange.com/stackoverflow/query/7521/how-unsung-am-i - a search on the data explorer would have found it – ChrisF Aug 20 '12 at 16:24
  • @TimPost 'm sorry that I tried data.stackexchange.com/stackoverflow/query/74657/… But dont know how to make use of it :( – blasteralfred Ψ Aug 20 '12 at 16:25
  • You aren't having issues using the data explorer, just problems constructing a query. This is, in fact a programming question. You could try on SO if you hit a wall again, but the question must include what you have tried so far, beyond a link to a saved query. If you have problems using the explorer itself, we're happy to get to the bottom of that. But questions asking how to construct a query, even using data explorer (barring the context of reporting a bug) are really not appropriate here. – Tim Post Aug 20 '12 at 16:34
  • Thanks Tim Post♦ for the info and also for closing the question :) – blasteralfred Ψ Aug 20 '12 at 16:38
  • @blasteralfred Not to discourage you from playing with it. Once you fork a shared query and get it to do what you want .. you'll spend a whole week without sleep completely sustained on instant noodle... wait, I think I need to go to bed now. – Tim Post Aug 20 '12 at 17:13
  • @blaster - How is this tracking "progress"? I would need about 50 more zero vote accepted answers to qualify. Hope I never get that! – Bo Persson Aug 20 '12 at 19:10

There's already a query for this, with a "clever" title which might have misled you: How unsung am I?

  • Clearly should have been named "How heroic am I?" – Bill the Lizard Aug 20 '12 at 17:16
