I recently (yesterday) got more than 5 scores in a few of my comments, but while the question was closed.

Will this be counted for my pundit badge progress? When I checked my progress in the Data Explorer today, the comments in which I scored more than 5 and were closed were not in the list with my other >5 score comments.

Is it such that the scores for closed question comment is not counted?

  • If a question is closed, everything in that question is still calculated. Whether or not it's deleted is a different matter, and one I'm not sure about.

A question being closed has absolutely no effect on comments for that badge. Comments which are deleted do not count towards the badge any longer.

Also, keep in mind that Data Explorer is only updated once a week, so your newer activity will not appear there right away.

  • yup... i thought i read somewhere that it will be updated once a day around midnight... anyways my bad.. thanks.. :)...
