The Sportsmanship badge is awarded for voting on 100 answers competing with one's own. Do the votes I cast count toward this badge when either of the following circumstances are true?

  1. The requestor has already accepted my answer
  2. The requestor has already accepted someone else's answer

1 Answer 1


The acceptance of an answer is unrelated to the Sportsmanship badge logic. It's very simple:

  • you have an answer posted to the question with a positive score
  • you have upvoted one of the other answers

If you have a hundred answers upvoted a hundred competing answers that match these criteria, then you will receive the badge.
