On my profile, when I try to edit the tag badge I am aiming for, there is only one tag option. Do you need to unlock other tags?


Yes, you can only track tag badges for tags for which you've posted at least one post (answer or question). If you haven't posted yet, you can't track a tag badge at all. Due to caching, it may take some time (at most 24 hours) for tag badges to become available.

  • Yeah, but not here on Meta Stack Exchange, which is a separate site. – Glorfindel May 12 '18 at 18:10
  • But when I go to another site and try to track tag badges, it only allows one when I have answered many! – PotatoLatte May 12 '18 at 18:12
  • Ah, I see now. It's a caching issue. – Glorfindel May 12 '18 at 18:15
  • A what?What is caching? – PotatoLatte May 12 '18 at 18:15
  • Tag scores aren't updated real time, but periodically. It may take up to 24 hours for those to be recalculated. – Glorfindel May 12 '18 at 18:17
