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

This question already has an answer here:

I've long had a score of 99 in the C++ tag on Stack Overflow. 4 hours ago, I got an upvote on a C++ answer, but I still have a score of 99 and haven't gotten the badge. It isn't a Community Wiki question, and there are no downvotes in my history that could have canceled it out.

What's going on? The weirdest part is that I did get reputation for the update, but no badge.

Based on my experience, the tag score update takes some time due to caching. Wait for a couple of days more and check. It should be updated by then. As per this answer, it is updated around 3:00 UTC.

I've been waiting for a couple of days but no signs of an update. I suppose I'll wait another day and file a bug report if it still doesn't – Marco A. Oct 4 '14 at 7:53
