On Stack Overflow, when I go into the Activity tab in my profile and select "track my next tag badge", I notice that the recommended tag is . It's rather odd, because my score for that tag is -2. Looking over the list makes it quite obvious that they are sorted by the number of answers that I've posted, rather than my score. Even weirder is that when I scroll down to "top tags", the tags there are sorted by score rather than answers. Why does it work like this?


In the 'Track my next tag badge' dialog, the tags are sorted by the average progress of the two bars (score and # of answers). As you need both to satisfy the criteria for the tag badge, this is the only viable sorting option.

In your case, if you manage to post one single genius answer to a JavaScript question scoring 50 points, you're already halfway the badge.
