Some tag info pages show who created the tag:

while others don't. I'm pretty sure I created that one as well, if you hover over the timestamp you can see when it was created:

which more or less matches with this edit where I created the tag:

I understand that some tags like were probably created by the Community user while the site itself was created (so it doesn't show an author), but some newer tags like don't show an author either even though the creator still has an account here.

What's going on here? Would this also mean I wouldn't get a Taxonomist badge for if I didn't already have one?

If there is no Taxonomist badge for a tag, its creator won't show in the tag info page.

This was said indirectly by Jarrod in this answer:

If a tag has a related Taxonomist badge, the creator will now be shown on its tag wiki/info page

So from this we can conclude that if a badge does not have related Taxonomist badge, its creator won't show in the tag info page.

  • Thanks. That's a rather half-baked implementation then... – Glorfindel Nov 14 '18 at 18:28
  • @Glorfindel not sure about the reasoning behind it, surely there is something at play e.g. faster development time for doing it this way. :) – Shadow Wizard Nov 14 '18 at 19:22
