Lower the required upvotes for badges in “small” (framework/tools) tags
Currently to obtain bronze technology badge, one needs to gather 100 up votes. To obtain silver and gold one need to gather 400 and 1000 up votes respectively.
The issue is, for less popular tag it is pretty hard to even think of getting bronze badge - it seems like gold one. That is just because the questions won't attract large number of people, so the answer might be insightful and valuable but still could end up with no up vote (but be accepted).
What do you think? I would suggest that for mature tags (existing for more than one year) the number of up votes to gain tag-related badge should depend on a traffic. For large tags like Java or C# 100 up votes seem just too easy to get, so maybe the number should be sufficiently larger and for tags like extjs with less than 2% of their traffic, 100 up votes is pretty hard to get.
So maybe 50 for bronze badge, 100 for silver and 250 for gold would give a clearer picture of user's competency in the subject.
