The description of the tumbleweed badge states, "Asked a question with no answers, no comments, and low views for a week"

How many views exactly is 'low'?

Based on looking at posts made by recent recipients of the badge, I would say that the maximum number of views is 10 to 15.

I've seen empirical evidence that it's at least slightly greater than 10. Maybe 12 or 15. – Greg Hewgill Dec 9 '09 at 4:40
That's what she said. – Adam Davis Dec 9 '09 at 5:05
I've seen higher than 10 as well. I've even received the badge for a question that had about 15 views. – alex Dec 9 '09 at 13:21
Agreed, looking farther back through the history I see a few with slightly more views. Last night I couldn't find any over 11, however. – Ether Dec 9 '09 at 17:00

The view count is rarely the limiting factor -- no answers, no comments for a week typically is.

In fact, looking at the query, I bet we could remove the view count test entirely with almost no change in # of badge awards...

If you have only an upvote, but no answer and low views, does this count? – Saif Bechan Apr 5 '10 at 6:31
I've twice had a question with no answers and low views (16 in one case, 15 in another) for a week and still not gotten it, but each got an upvote. So I wonder the same thing @Saif is wondering. – Daniel DiPaolo May 18 '10 at 17:41
