I wounder if the Tumbleweed badge is working here on Programmers.

I had a question with low views, no comments and no answer in 12 days, and I didn't get a Tubmleweed.

Is it working or is the requirements very hard? Maybe it's inactivated?

There are two issues at play:

  1. The text for the Tumbleweed badge on Programmers.SE is out of date. It should read:

    Asked a question with no votes, no answers, no comments, and low views for a week

  2. None of your questions meet the requirements for the badge, given the correct definition. If you're curious about the viewcount requirement, it's 10-15.
