It’s just a consolation badge, and I’ve had the unfortunate pleasure of asking my second question that would earn the badge. It would be nice (for some strange reason) to get another tumbleweed badge.
I’m not sure if the reason is that given in “Why are badges sometimes not awarded?”. That is, my first question was eventually answered, so it negated my first tumbleweed badge, but it wasn’t taken away; I just didn’t receive a second one. But this seems to conflict with the definition of the tumbleweed badge:
Asked a question with no answers, no comments, and low views for a week.
which is still true of both questions.
