Possible Duplicates:
Why doesn't this guy have the Gold Delphi badge?
Strange tag-badge behavior for scala tag

This question is similar to another one I found, but not identical. His problem was solved by waiting 24 hours. I, however, have waited almost 36 hours without a trace of the system's recognition of the fact that I have had 26 posts and 101 votes in a certain tag, for 36 hours now. Here's my profile. Can anyone clue me in here?

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.

Which...tag badge were you hoping for? – Cody Gray Jul 16 '11 at 10:14
If you look at my ELU profile, in the tags section, you'll see that I have a single tag word-choice with 101 votes and 26 posts. – Daniel Jul 16 '11 at 10:18
And why not ask this on the English.SE Meta site? – Cody Gray Jul 16 '11 at 10:18
Because it's not an English.SE-specific problem. It is a technical problem. – Daniel Jul 16 '11 at 10:19
It's explained quite well in my answer. Not sure what you still have a question about. The duplicate question covers the exact same problem, you just have to do a little bit of thinking. For example, we're not talking about the Delphi tag and we're not talking about a gold tag badge. – Cody Gray Jul 16 '11 at 10:26
No, no I understand your saying it was a dupe now. I didn't see the "Legend" sidebar on the tag badge page, that's all. Thank you very much! – Daniel Jul 16 '11 at 10:28
@Cody: I also didn't know that the counter did not count question-votes. If I had known that, I wouldn't be posting here. Thanks again! – Daniel Jul 16 '11 at 10:30

I assume you were expecting to be awarded the tag badge for [word-choice], but you don't meet the requirements yet.

The "Legend" sidebar on the badges page explains the requirements for each level of tag badge:

You must have a total score of 100 in at least 20 non-community wiki answers to achieve this badge.

But if I hover over your score for the [word-choice] tag in your profile, it says:

Asked 8 non-wiki questions with a total score of 32. Answered 18 non-wiki questions with a total score of 102.

So you haven't answered enough questions yet. You've only answered 18; you need to answer a minimum of 20 to qualify for the badge.

While you have 102 upvotes in the tag [word-choice] you've only answered 18 non-CW questions.

You need to answer at least 20 questions as it states on the tag badge page.

I'm sure this is a duplicate but I can't find it right now. – ChrisF Jul 16 '11 at 10:17
This is the question I was thinking of - meta.stackexchange.com/questions/71904/… – ChrisF Jul 16 '11 at 10:51
