Hey! I believe I stumbled upon a bug. I had a sandbox account under my name and created a project. Everything was great about the badge. However once I renamed my account to match that of GitHub Organization, an image does not show up anymore. If I follow the link for png image , I get

{message not found or access denied."}

I did try to wait a few days and even restarted a build hoping it would twitch things back in place,but it did not. The particular account in question is PurpleI2P that used to be mlt :

Perhaps, I can recreate the project, but it is seems like a bug nonetheless.

    Heh, interesting case. Your project has only PR builds while AppVeyor filters PR builds for the badge. It was explicitly requested by many customers that PR statuses should not interfere with branch statuses :)

    Will add another parameter to status image URL to don't ignore PRs.

    Oh, silly me. I forgot that it was just PR all that time after rename. I wanted to keep things clean and to make sure everything was alright before the merger. I confirm, the badge appeared fine once I merged PR. Thank you.
