What are tag badges? How do they work?

I've given answers of more than 100 questions about C#, and I got more than 100 up votes for those answers.
Yet, I don't get the tag badge for C#.

How many up-votes still I need to get, to obtain that tag badge?

  • Are you sure you have answered more than 100 questions with a total score of more than 100? Where did you see or how did you know this? Nov 29, 2011 at 6:46

  • @ChrisF: I closed this as a duplicate of that question earlier, but a flag revealed to me that they weren't quite the same so I lifted it. Nov 29, 2011 at 10:38
  • @BoltClock'saUnicorn This is a duplicate, as the answer to this question is the answer to the other question. As I have seen, a question that is already answered in a question tagged faq is usually closed as duplicate.

Looking at your profile, you've currently got a total score (up votes - down votes) of 64 in the C# tag. You get the badge when your total score in the C# tag is at least 100, and you've answered at least 20 questions.

  • how do you know that!!!!!

  • @sikender There's a score visible in your profile, under Tags, but I think this includes votes on questions as well as answers.

    @Jeremy Banks: There's a tooltip on the score that reveals the distribution of scores for non-wiki questions and answers. Nov 29, 2011 at 6:53

  • +1 for editing "upvotes" to "total score". Now I can delete my answer ;)

The score you have for is reported in your user profile, right to the left of the tag.


The tooltip reports all the data you need: The score is 64, and you answered 68 non-wiki questions.

To get the bronze badge, your score needs to be 100, and you should answer at least 20 non-wiki questions. While you answered to enough questions to get the badge, your score is still too low.
