I've been searching for my next badge, and I came across the Tumbleweed badge, which has the following requirements to earn:

ask a question with:

  1. a score of 0
  2. no answers
  3. no comments
  4. low views

for a week.

What counts as 'low views'?

I'm asking for a quantity.

  • $\begingroup$ One data point: I got the Tumbleweed badge on a question with 90 views. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @called2voyage - It's a low number of views in a week that count, not the total. Were it not for your comment (and now mine), this question would have been a good tumbleweed candidate (zero score, no answers, and asked in a very low traffic corner of the SE network). $\endgroup$ Commented Feb 6, 2018 at 14:39
  • $\begingroup$ @David Hammen - but it also says 'no comments', so this question would not win it. But it's weird that it's a bronze badge, even though it's moderately difficult to earn. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Imtherealsanic - It's a door prize, and a consolation one at that. That said, I believe the "no comments" means no comments during the week during which the view number is low rather than no comments ever. $\endgroup$ Commented Feb 6, 2018 at 15:38
  • $\begingroup$ so you're telling me that if somebody comments after the badge is earned, it won't effect you? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Imtherealsanic Badges are, generally, never revoked. So yes, a comment, extra views, or score changes won't affect an already awarded badge. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Tumbleweed no longer exists as a badge. This question is now obsolete. $\endgroup$
