I very recently earned the below badge. But I am sorry, I do not understand it. enter image description here

It says

Earned at least 100 total score for at least 20 answers in the java tag.

But I have answered 140 questions under Java tag and pretty sure would have earned more than 100 points. Then why did I receive it so late. Currently I have 3.3K points on SO.

Secondly if so, I have answered about 41 questions under Scala tag, then why didn't I receive this badge for Scala?

  • How many upvotes total did you get with answers in the Scala tag? – Pip Aug 2 '13 at 17:31
  • @TheProgramm3r Total number of upvotes? we it should be more than 40 I guess. More info here: stackoverflow.com/… – Jatin Aug 2 '13 at 17:33
  • you need over 100 upvotes for each tag, total, AS WELL AS over 20 answers in that same tag, to get the badge – Pip Aug 2 '13 at 17:35

    "Score" is net up-votes, not reputation. We've asked for this to be clarified, but no action yet. – Aaron Bertrand Aug 2 '13 at 17:55

You will get the answer if you mouseover to those numbers near the tags (127 near java and 51 near scala).

Java: 140 answer with total score of 127 Java

Scala: 38 answer with total score of 51 Scala

You just earned 51 Score for scala (Score = No. of Upvote - No. of Downvote), so you need 49 more to achieve that Scala Badge.

Lets break it downs:

  • score = number of upvotes - number of downvotes

  • in the java tag = questions that have been tagged with the tag (or synonym)

So - you need to have at least 20 answers to questions with that tag and to have gotten a score of 100 on them.

Secondly if so, I have answered about 41 questions under Scala tag, then why didn't I receive this badge for Scala?

What's your score on ? It is less than 100. It is currently 51.

You can see this information on your profile tag page - hover over the tag to see the different scores in a tooltip.

  • just what i was trying to explain to him :D – Pip Aug 2 '13 at 17:36
