Taxonomist -– who is the “creator” of a tag?

I recently re-tagged a question, and created a new tag in the process. If that tag becomes popular, who will get the Taxonomist badge?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

You will get the badge as you created the tag. – ChrisF Sep 24 '10 at 15:32
@Chris, hm, you're right, this is a dupe. Not sure why it looked different to me at first. Voting to close. – Pops Sep 24 '10 at 15:45

In this case, you would get the badge. The tag wouldn't have existed until you created it, and the OP had no involvement.
