I created a tag wiki for a tag that was missing one. I also added a small bit of content to an existing tag. I did not get the badge. I saw a post stating that creating a wiki was now included in the badge calculation. Regardless I have also edited it and it seems to be approved. Any new news on this?

    The same on other SE sites.

    Could you link the site (and associated tag wiki) where you should have the badge?

  • a) these things don't get applied right away. b) You should have gotten it.

  • I have received another badge between then and now, so it should have picked up then I assume. Still no badge. Commented Jun 9, 2011 at 14:57
  • @Grace Note Nobody at Japanese Language has this badge even though our tag wikis have descriptions (in my case, I suggested the excerpt and description for translations). I wonder if it is bugged if the tag was edited via a suggested edit (since being a new site, none of us had the reputation to edit without going through the queue).

Confirmed, a few weeks ago I refactored the Posts table to allow for a whole bunch of new PostTypeIds.

TagWiki and TagWikiExcerpt are now PostTypeId 5 and 4. The badge checks for PostTypeId 3.

I am committing a fix to the badge today.

    Fix seems to work, at least for me. Commented Jun 20, 2011 at 11:06

This looks like a "me too" answer but I can confirm that the tag editor badge appears to be broken. I recently (three or four days ago) edited my first tag ("cryptography") both on stackoverflow and security.stackexchange. On SO, I do not have trusted user privileges yet, so this went through peer approval, who did approve (I got the +2 rep changes); on SE I have the trusted user privileges, so no peer approval. Right now, no tag editor badge for me, neither on SO or security.SE.
