Hopefully I can ask this question before it becomes "no longer relevant"...
I was looking forward to passing 400 upvotes in the 'git' tag, which I seem to have recently, but haven't been awarded the badge just yet.
My question is, when are these topic badges awarded? Is that more of a daily periodic job or some background task? I ask because I'm curious since they don't seem to work like the regular badges (awarded on next login), not because I'm being whingy and I want my shiny new badge now.
(Us high-rep users need something to look forward to!)
