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

Let's say I have posted an answer on a question, that answer got 50 upvotes. Sweet.

Next, the question was retagged, and was added to it.

Will those 50 upvotes be counted towards my badge on ? Or would only new upvotes on my answer count? Or perhaps the answer wouldn't be counted on the because it wasn't there in the first place?

Could anyone please clarify this?

Yes, they will count towards it. But tag scores are not recalculated until 03:00 UTC.

And it also works the other way. A tag gets removed: you lose the tag score :( – Daniel Fischer Jan 7 '13 at 0:03
