I just went through the awarded Tumbleweed badges to check for any possible weed eater hat and stumbled over this question: jQuery resizable plugin

The badge had been awarded 17 hours ago but the question is from 14th August 2015 which is clearly due to the needed range

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

so the badge should have been awarded long ago.

The same is true for Creation of a list of 1000 items with Backbone which had been asked on 6th august 2015.

    \$\begingroup\$ Creation of a list of 1000 items with Backbone has comments that were removed about 17 hours ago, which is likely the reason for that one. I can't see any reason for why jQuery resizable plugin wasn't "awarded" with Tumbleweed before though. \$\endgroup\$ Commented Dec 23, 2015 at 10:05

1 Answer 1

  1. The author of jQuery resizable plugin had their account merged with another yesterday. During a merge, the badges are moved over/re-awarded and they can appear with a different creation date as a result.

  2. "no comments" is one of the requirements for the badge, so Creation of a list of 1000 items with Backbone became eligible once the comments were deleted yesterday.
