The description says "Zero score accepted answers: more than 5 and 20% of total". I understand what zero score accepted answers are, and more than 5 makes sense, but what is "20% of total"? I'd assumed it meant that the zero-score accepted answers were more than 20% of your total zero-score answers, but I have reason to think this is not so.

  • I agree that the wording is awkward. Perhaps "Five or more Zero-Score answers, making up 20% of your total answers."

  • That's not the same as ErikA's answer. Is there anyone who can tell us what the actual definition is?

1 Answer 1


I'd guess it means that the number of zero-score accepted answers must make up more than 20% of your total accepted answers.

  • My zero-score accepted answers number 6, and my total accepted answers number 21, so it can't be that.

  • My understanding is that, for some badges, the process that calcluates things and awards badges only runs periodically, so give it a few days and see what happens.

  • It's been several days, but I hadn't realised that some "badge runs" are infrequent - I'll sit down and shut up for bit (and accept your answer with gratitude if and when the badge shows up!).
