I now have > 400 upvotes within jQuery tagged questions (see below images) but have not received the badge as yet. I passed the 400 mark a good few hours ago. Can anybody shed any light on this?

Wait a few more hours? – random Aug 4 '09 at 7:00
    
Is it time based? e.g does the system have to go through a recalc job in order to issue these badges? Thats why I am asking the question and vague answers like that really do not answer anything do they! – redsquare Aug 4 '09 at 7:09
    
Yah, sometimes, things take some time to get processed. Wait a day and see what happens. – Troggy Aug 4 '09 at 7:11

Different badges run on different cycles. Some every few minutes, some daily.

I used to have access to the server logs that showed this, but Jeff took my shiny toys away ;-( Meaning: I can't check what the cycle is for this specific badge.

So as has been suggested; wait a day...

Cheers Mark. Thanks for the confirmation. Why did he retract your toys? – redsquare Aug 4 '09 at 8:02

I think it was a few server-specific ones that people outside the SO dev team had no real need to use. Most of the tools remain ;-p – Marc Gravell Aug 4 '09 at 9:17

Retraction of toys sounds painful. I hope you aren't walking funny. – Jeff Yates Aug 4 '09 at 14:04
