Does the generalist badge algorithm consider the current set of tags for any question I've answered and received at least 15 score on, even if I retag the question?
If so, does that mean that I could cover off my last few tags by retagging some question with a bunch of top 40 tags that I haven't got yet?
In case that's not clear, imagine that I already have enough score on answers in 18 of the top 40 tags. I haven't yet received enough score on any answers to questions tagged
If I go find an answer of mine that has received at least 15 score and edit the tags to add
subjective, will that trigger my generalist badge?
I imagine that in some cases, this scenario is appropriate, especially if the new tags fit the question. However, it seems open to abuse, particularly if the badge is not revoked after other users correct the tags on that question.
One final clarification: 15 score means 15 reputation gain on an answer, doesn't it? So two upvotes and two downvotes on an answer would still cover any top 40 tags on that question, right?
