This question already has an answer here:
According to the Help Center, the requirement of earning the Java bronze tag badge is:
Earned at least 100 total score for at least 20 non-community wiki answers in the java tag.
I've answered many questions with the java tag and gained more than 500 reputation, but I haven't gotten the Java bronze tag badge.
Could someone tell me why? Am I misunderstanding some of the rules?
