I was checking my answers and I counted that I have ten answers with positive score, but I wonder why I am not getting the Rep Hunter hat? Isn't the trigger to have 10 answers all upvoted in one day?

Here is the image I took 12 hours ago:

As you can see there are exactly 10 answers that were upvoted in that day, and I counted that all the answers were in the specific day...

Is this supposed to be like this or what?

  • Those four/eleven hours didn't set you back one day on UTC, did they? – Ollie Dec 17 '20 at 0:00
  • @Ollie Nope no. – U11-Forward Dec 17 '20 at 0:00
  • Are any downvoted, zero score or deleted? – Catija ModStaff Dec 17 '20 at 0:01
  • @Catija One was downvoted but it had 3 or 4 upvotes, so still positive score... – U11-Forward Dec 17 '20 at 0:02
  • stackoverflow.com/questions/65319556/… – Catija ModStaff Dec 17 '20 at 0:03
  • @Catija Oh yeah I forgot!!! – U11-Forward Dec 17 '20 at 0:04
  • @Catija So you can't have downvoted posts? – U11-Forward Dec 17 '20 at 0:04
  • I'd need Yaakov to confirm but I think so? – Catija ModStaff Dec 17 '20 at 0:04

I'm pretty sure all your answers on that day need to have a positive score, or else you must have exactly 10:

  1. the hat description explicitly mentions this ('all answers must have a positive score')
  2. I scienced it here on Meta. I had twelve answers for a while, but two with zero score. The Rep Hunter hat didn't appear until I (temporarily) deleted the two answers with zero score.

We'll need Yaakov to confirm whether this is or not.

  • Yaakov did indeed confirm here that all posts must be positively scored regardless of whether they are accepted or not. – Nick Dec 24 '20 at 6:13
  • @Nick thanks for replying but it does not exclude accepted answers, which signifies a more than positive response, and it also awards the author 15 rep. You found the solution because you asked on chat, not on this page. Zero score post = 0 Accepted post = 15 – Mari-Lou A Dec 24 '20 at 7:09
  • @Mari-LouA score refers only to up and down votes, not reputation. – Nick Dec 24 '20 at 7:12
  • @Nick I see. I guess rules are rules, no escaping from that but... still, an accepted answer is a "score" of some sorts. If an OP forgets to upvote or doesn't have enough rep and instead accepts an answer, why shouldn't it count? – Mari-Lou A Dec 24 '20 at 7:23
  • @Mari-LouA I agree with you, but unfortunately the way it's set up is not to allow that to count. I'll remember it for next year... – Nick Dec 24 '20 at 8:07

Thanks for @Catija to show me that I had one downvoted answer that I deleted, which was this one:


This is the link.

Gonna work on getting this hat now!
