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

Tags are mostly all lowercase, e.g. python.

If you receive a silver badge for this tag (400x upvotes) you get a silver badge with the same name (python).

This is inconsistent with the names of the normal badges (such as Tumbleweed or Yearling) which all start with an uppercase letter.

I think the first letter of these tag specific badges should be capitalized.

ick. no, keep them the same as the tags, please. – quack quixote Apr 3 '10 at 10:15

This would then create badges named like Iphone that look kinda weird, imo.

Anyways I like the fact that they are different: you can easily distinguish them from the "real" badges. If a tag with the same name as a badge becomes popular, then it would be the only way to distinguish the two.
