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

Some badges are not awarded after the event has happened.

They require analysis, some of them are the Suffrage, Tenacious, Unsung Hero, Quorum...

These calculations are triggered by some schedules.

What are theses badges? When are those calculated?

I always assumed that there was a schedule that runs say every hour that performs these tasks and awards to them to the user. Once awarded then a flag to notify the user is set? Why would you need to know anyway? – codingbadger Dec 14 '10 at 15:40
I just noticed this, and wanted to know when it was happening and for what badges, I checked Stack Exchange and verified that I should get an Tenacious Badge, however I haven't received and I'm wondering if this will be checked I don't know once every 3 months. – Gabriel Guimarães Dec 14 '10 at 16:44
Hate to say it, but you don't qualify for the Tenacious badge. You need more than five zero-score accepted answers to get it, but you have exactly five such answers. – ЯegDwight Dec 15 '10 at 13:05
Thanks @RegDwight but I still want to know when are these calculated. – Gabriel Guimarães Dec 15 '10 at 13:49

If someone can get their hands on an old stackexchange 1.0 data dumb there is a Badges.xml file or similar that contains this information.

I used to have it but now I can't find it anymore. =(
