What are tag badges? How do they work?

I've given answers of more than 100 questions about C#, and I got more than 100 up votes for those answers.
Yet, I don't get the tag badge for C#.

How many up-votes still I need to get, to obtain that tag badge?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Are you sure you have answered more than 100 questions with a total score of more than 100? Where did you see or how did you know this? – BoltClock's a Unicorn Nov 29 '11 at 6:46
count points!!!! – sikender Nov 29 '11 at 6:48
What points...? – BoltClock's a Unicorn Nov 29 '11 at 6:48
upvotes of answers!!! – sikender Nov 29 '11 at 6:55
@ChrisF: I closed this as a duplicate of that question earlier, but a flag revealed to me that they weren't quite the same so I lifted it. – BoltClock's a Unicorn Nov 29 '11 at 10:38
@BoltClock'saUnicorn This is a duplicate, as the answer to this question is the answer to the other question. As I have seen, a question that is already answered in a question tagged faq is usually closed as duplicate. – kiamlaluno Nov 29 '11 at 13:34

Looking at your profile, you've currently got a total score (up votes - down votes) of 64 in the C# tag. You get the badge when your total score in the C# tag is at least 100, and you've answered at least 20 questions.

how do you know that!!!!! – sikender Nov 29 '11 at 6:48
@sikender There's a score visible in your profile, under Tags, but I think this includes votes on questions as well as answers. – Jeremy Banks Nov 29 '11 at 6:50
@Jeremy Banks: There's a tooltip on the score that reveals the distribution of scores for non-wiki questions and answers. – BoltClock's a Unicorn Nov 29 '11 at 6:53
@BoltClock'saUnicorn Wow, I never know that. Thanks. I must hover everything. – Jeremy Banks Nov 29 '11 at 6:55

+1 for editing "upvotes" to "total score". Now I can delete my answer ;) – Shawn Chin Nov 29 '11 at 10:16

The score you have for is reported in your user profile, right to the left of the tag.


The tooltip reports all the data you need: The score is 64, and you answered 68 non-wiki questions.

To get the bronze badge, your score needs to be 100, and you should answer at least 20 non-wiki questions. While you answered to enough questions to get the badge, your score is still too low.
