I just got awarded the "Tireless" badge on StackOverflow, and have inspected my answers to check if I qualify for the "Unsung Hero" badge.

I have written a query available here, that clearly says that 12/30 accepted answers have zero score. That's both more than 25% and 10.

Do I have to wait a day after getting the "Tireless" badge before getting the "Unsung Hero" one?

  • Ooh. Hadn't thought of that. I'll have another look.

  • Yup. That did the trick. I've updated the query.

I've forked @Eric's "How unsung am I" and added the 10 days requirement - just enter your Stack Overflow id and you'll get all the needed stats: How close am I to unsung hero badge
