List of all badges with full descriptions

A few months ago I noticed reaching the 100 vote/20 non-CW answer threshold for a tag and since then have exceeded these thresholds, but no class badge ever was awarded. The threshold was first reached by retagging a question: perhaps that's the origin of the problem?

(I really don't care about this particular situation, and most likely am just misunderstanding the process, but I'm bringing this circumstance up because it could indicate some flaw deep in the badge-awarding algorithm, so perhaps others are affected without knowing it.)


The algorithm tag for which you expected a badge only has 83 questions.

The minimum requirement for any tag badge to be awarded is 100. Once there are 100 questions with that tag the badge should be awarded.
