I created a tag wiki for a tag that was missing one. I also added a small bit of content to an existing tag. I did not get the badge. I saw a post stating that creating a wiki was now included in the badge calculation. Regardless I have also edited it and it seems to be approved. Any new news on this?

The same on other SE sites. – VMAtm Jun 8 '11 at 20:05
Could you link the site (and associated tag wiki) where you should have the badge? – Grace Note Jun 8 '11 at 20:09
a) these things don't get applied right away. b) You should have gotten it. – jcolebrand Jun 9 '11 at 5:40
I have received another badge between then and now, so it should have picked up then I assume. Still no badge. – Dustin Laine Jun 9 '11 at 14:57
@Grace Note Nobody at Japanese Language has this badge even though our tag wikis have descriptions (in my case, I suggested the excerpt and description for translations). I wonder if it is bugged if the tag was edited via a suggested edit (since being a new site, none of us had the reputation to edit without going through the queue). – Troyen Jun 9 '11 at 23:11

Confirmed, a few weeks ago I refactored the Posts table to allow for a whole bunch of new PostTypeIds.

TagWiki and TagWikiExcerpt are now PostTypeId 5 and 4. The badge checks for PostTypeId 3.

I am committing a fix to the badge today.

Fix seems to work, at least for me. – Thomas Pornin Jun 20 '11 at 11:06

This looks like a "me too" answer but I can confirm that the tag editor badge appears to be broken. I recently (three or four days ago) edited my first tag ("cryptography") both on stackoverflow and security.stackexchange. On SO, I do not have trusted user privileges yet, so this went through peer approval, who did approve (I got the +2 rep changes); on SE I have the trusted user privileges, so no peer approval. Right now, no tag editor badge for me, neither on SO or security.SE.
