I was wondering if there is any way I can check number of accepted answers I posted so that I can calculate how near I am to get Unsung Hero gold badge.


I also noticed it doesn't count answers that one answered on there own questions.


First: the real requirements:

  • Have more than ten accepted answers with a score of zero, and have those zero-score accepted answers account for at least 25% 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

You have two ways.

First: search for

user:me isaccepted:1 votes:0

This will display only your 0 votes accepted answers. Then do your math from there. Since you also need to take in account days, you may want to add a "created:" somewhere

created:2012-03..2012-04 (created between 2012-03-01 and 2012-04-30)

Other option:

use this query How Unsung am I?. Notice that you will query old data by design, so any result you get won't be accurate.


You can go to your profile and click the answers link... and count them... which is less than ideal.

  • I went to my profile several times intended to count them but just gave up on first page Lol. – Muhammad Raja Mar 9 '13 at 7:41

    @MuhammadRaja - this post on the main meta site refers to an app that displays badge advancements. Never used it, so I don't know if the Unsung hero badge is included. Link: meta.stackexchange.com/a/137960/171199 – SPArcheon Mar 14 '13 at 9:09
  • @SPArchaeologist thanks, this App is actually helpful but just to confirm it doesn't calculate Unsung Hero Gold Badge. – Muhammad Raja Mar 14 '13 at 10:55
  • @MuhammadRaja - yea, I already suspected it. Ok. Let's try something different. – SPArcheon Mar 14 '13 at 11:12
