I think I qualified for the tenacious badge on the weekend.

But almost 48 hours later I have not received the badge.

Should I be concerned yet. Most people seem to think 24 hours is reasonable. I have 6 accepted 0 score answers, out of 18 total answers, so I'd be interested to hear if I've missed something on the criteria.

From the List of all badges with full descriptions:


  • silver; awarded once; same family as Unsung Hero (gold)
  • Have more than five accepted answers with a score of zero, and have those zero-score accepted answers account for at least 20% of all your accepted answers
    • Only accepted answers at least ten days old are considered
    • Community Wiki answers, deleted answers, and self-accepted answers are not included in any calculations
  • Was originally named Tireless.
  • Sources: How long do Tireless and Unsung Hero badges take to be awarded?, a SO team member who checked the source code in chat
  • $\begingroup$ Well that answers it then. The most recent accepted answer is less than 10 days old. $\endgroup$
