Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Assuming uniform distribution of badge earning: (Time between script runs) / 2 – Mysticial Nov 12 '12 at 17:23

That depends of the job that is calculating the badge. It might be seconds, hours or days.

Jobs that take much performance run not as often as others. And sites that are not so heavy visited deliver badges faster.
