This question already has an answer here:

I am currently following a gold tag badge for javascript, it's description says earn at least 1000 total score for at least 200 non community wiki answers in the tag, what I understand from this is I need to earn 1000 reputation by answering atleast 200 questions which are tagged as JavaScript and which are non community wiki.

I am like really earning a lot of reputation daily but my tag score is constant to 581/1000 from past week, but my reputation gain is more then 1000 in the past week (mostly by answering Javascript based questions only).

I think SO Community should bring more clarity on how to earn this bade exactly.

I have a few doubts though:

  1. Non community wiki posts are those which are asked by a normal user and are not marked as community wiki. I think i need to answer these questions and if i will get upvotes my score for gold badge will increase (Which is not increasing at all).
  2. Should javascript be one of the tag on that question or it should be the only badge on that question?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • This is actually a known, long time bug. The way to "fix" it is described here. You can see your actual tag scores here, and you have score of 653 and not 581. – Shadow The Curly Braced Wizard Dec 29 '15 at 7:29
  • @ShadowWizard 653 is the number of answer i have posted, and 581 is my score. Correct me if i am wrong here. – void Dec 29 '15 at 7:32
  • Wrong indeed, When in doubt, hover: i.stack.imgur.com/W38TT.png – Shadow The Curly Braced Wizard Dec 29 '15 at 7:33
  • Cool okay, got you. :) Thank you so much. – void Dec 29 '15 at 7:34
  • And @ShadowWizard please comment on this Non community wiki posts are those which are asked by a normal user and are not marked as community wiki. I think i need to answer these questions and if i will get upvotes my score for gold badge will increase? – void Dec 29 '15 at 7:34
  • My pleasure, and hope that irritating bug of frozen score will be fixed. :) – Shadow The Curly Braced Wizard Dec 29 '15 at 7:35
  • Regarding the "Non community wiki posts" yes you are correct. These days new questions marked as CW are very rare, so it shouldn't be a problem. – Shadow The Curly Braced Wizard Dec 29 '15 at 7:36
  • Yeah thanks, last thing, In how much time the actual tag badge score refreshes? – void Dec 29 '15 at 7:37

Score is net upvotes, not reputation.

Lots of things in your profile are cached. You will see a delay between events occurring, and some of them being reflected in your profile.

And badge-awarding happens periodically: not as soon as the goal is reached, but some hours afterwards, the next time the badge process runs.

  • But I am getting lots of upvotes but no increase in my score? – void Dec 29 '15 at 7:17
  • In how much time the score updates? Like does it take more then a week or it reflects instantly? – void Dec 29 '15 at 7:18
