According to here, "If enough upvotes are earned in a tag – any tag – the badge will be automatically created and awarded."

How many points/votes does a particular tag require before it will garner its own badge? It appears that the answer is "400 upvotes" judging by the other tags listed on that page, but I wanted to see if there was a less speculative answer.

Yes, 400 votes (not points) for silver; 1000 for gold (only counted for votes on non-community-wiki answers).
