This question already has an answer here:

Tenacious: Zero score accepted answers: more than 5 and 20% of total

Unsung Hero: Zero score accepted answers: more than 10 and 25% of total

I have 26 total accepted answers, 15 are upvoted and 11 are zero scored.

more than 10 and 25% of total

26*25% = 7

Why I was not awarded with Unsung Hero ?

    I think the answers need to be at least a week old – Ral Zarek Nov 18 '13 at 13:56

    I believe it's 25% of your total answers, not 25% of your accepted answers – Richard Tingle Nov 18 '13 at 13:58

    @RichardTingle nope, not according to this: and have those zero-score accepted answers account for at least 25% of all your accepted answers – Shadow Nov 18 '13 at 14:00
  • Relevant part of the above linked faq is "Only accepted answers at least ten days old are considered", as @Ral also mentioned. – Shadow Nov 18 '13 at 14:00

The query for the badge looks up all accepted answers that are 10 days old, and are not self-accepted, deleted or community wiki, then checks that at least 10 of those are at 0 points and if that makes for more than 25% of the qualifying accepted answers.

  • So I have to wait for 10 days and not giving answer to get the badge :) – Harish Singh Nov 18 '13 at 14:05
  • Well, not necessarily. Although, you should try not to get your answers accepted :P I too have to wait for another 7-8 days for my gold badge :D – shad0w_wa1k3r Nov 18 '13 at 14:07
  • ok I will accept your answer when I will get the gold badge :D – Harish Singh Nov 18 '13 at 14:10
  • lol okay. :) Btw, try this (with your userid) stackoverflow.com/… – shad0w_wa1k3r Nov 18 '13 at 14:15
