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

The 50th question on Stack Overflow tagged with the tag has been asked; as far as I know this question was the first with the tag, yet I have not received the Taxonomist badge. What am I missing?

Sorry, UserId for the [go] tag is null.

Creation date was 2008-11-07 14:31:52.

So it was already co-opted by another user who was probably long since culled due to inactivity.

I am also guessing it was attached to a question for a long long time until the retagging around the new language happened.

It was probably created by someone referencing the game Go. – gnostradamus Nov 15 '09 at 21:43
Something about that doesn't seem right, especially if the tagging was later found to be inappropriate for the question. – fbrereto Nov 16 '09 at 17:48
the underlying problem here is silly names being given to programming languages. – Spudley Oct 5 '12 at 18:12

It's likely awarded in a batch process. I'm sure you'll get it soon.
