I reached 100 upvotes on 30 non-community wiki answers to questions at least 4 days ago. I'm now up to 102 upvotes. But I still have not been awarded the bronze badge for that tag.

I've seen meta Q&A referring to a delay of no more than a day to be awarded a tag badge. Is my situation a bug? or is there a valid reason why I have not been awarded the badge?

As findstr os a Windows terminal command and many questions here are on the syntax shouldn't most of the questions be closed as off topic? –  Mark Feb 7 '13 at 13:33

The tag is only used on 84 questions, but tag badges are only awarded for tags which are used on at least 100 questions.

It's subtly mentioned on the list of tag badges:

If enough votes are earned in a tag with 100+ total questions, the badge will be automatically created and awarded.

Once the number of questions reaches 100, the system should automatically award you the badge.

Thanks - I'm not sure that is subtle, but I definitely missed that important point. I think I skipped the intro paragraph and skipped to the requirements for each badge when I read the descriptions. –  dbenham Feb 7 '13 at 5:24
