Update: This question was asked due to the employee comment quoted below, but the employee was incorrect. The badge is in fact awarded for tag edits that also modify the body or title. As such, most of this question is irrelevant.
The Organizer badge, awarded for editing the tags of a question, was originally introduced in response to an old, now-removed privilege that allowed 500+ rep users to "retag" questions. This was during a time without suggested edits, and later on when suggested edits were introduced, such users could still make such edits without having to suggest the edit and have it approved.
Today, the badge continues to be awarded
, but only for making tag-only edits. As the word "retag" is no longer used anywhere in the software except in the description of the badge, I filed a request to have the description changed. animuson's comment on that request summarizes the issue with this badge perfectly:
[The Organizer badge] is only awarded on a tag-only edit. With the [retag] privilege gone, this is just a really dumb badge that does exactly the same thing as Editor just with an additional restriction. Like the retag privilege itself, it no longer serves any purpose. We shouldn't be encouraging users to only edit the tags when on the edit screen.
Based on this, what should be done to the Organizer badge?
Should it be redefined to also include edits that not only edit tags but also possibly edit the title or body? Should the badge be removed?
One impediment to removing the badge is that it's one of 20 "triple-star" badges that count towards moderator candidate scores in elections. If the outcome is to remove the badge, what should be put in its place? (If that last question makes this discussion too broad, comment, and I'll remove it.)
