I was wondering why I didn't get the Unsung Hero badge when I theoretically should have it on Stack Overflow.

The How Unsung am I? requests shows only 10 unscored answers, the real count is 11 but there's an answer not showing in the Data Explorer.

Indeed, the answer of this question: Angular 6 and typed API data doesn't show at all: Demo

I noticed there was a 2-day delay, but this delay has passed already.

  • No it’s not a two day delay. The data’s only updated on Sunday – Laurel Sep 27 '18 at 14:50

That post is from September 24th.

If you check SEDE's homepage, you'll notice a message on the right saying

Data updated Sep 23 at 8:04

It's an excellent source of data but it's not able to predict the future. Your post will be there the next time it refreshes, which happens every week on Sunday morning UTC.

  • Oh okay, yesterday I read "data updated two days ago" then I thought it was updated every day based on 2-day old data. – Twisting nether Sep 27 '18 at 14:52
  • Will accept as soon as I'm able to – Twisting nether Sep 27 '18 at 14:52
  • By the way, the badges rely on the same data source as the data explorer? – Twisting nether Sep 27 '18 at 14:54
  • Not really; e.g. you can't predict the Electorate badge because votes are anonymous. For Unsung Hero, it should work. – Glorfindel Sep 27 '18 at 14:58
  • Okay but I mean, it does not rely on live data? – Twisting nether Sep 27 '18 at 14:59
  • The badge awarding system relies on live data. Otherwise, all badges would be awarded on Sunday, and they aren't :) – Glorfindel Sep 27 '18 at 15:00
