The tag-score job appears to be running again (yay!), but if it goes down again, or if someone is impatient with the once-a-day updates, I posted a page that gets the Tag Scores for a given user. It returns results that are up-to-the-minute (excepting possible caching, by the API, on repeat requests). The results are fully sortable and searchable. ...

One of our daily scheduled jobs was timing out, causing tag scores to not refresh. We changed the way we were calling the job that was timing out, so this issue shouldn't recur. Sorry for the trouble!

One should never push code right before going on vacation. The bug has been fixed, a test has been written, and any incorrectly-awarded badges have been revoked. Your topbar's achievement list has also been cleaned. My apologies.

The tag script now has not run for at least three days now. I know that this question is from March 2014, but this issue is absolutely not fixed. I could make a list of the tens of duplicates about this issue, but that would be somewhat of a waste of time. It harms those of us like me (lookup site) on the edge of getting our gold tag badges from doing our ...

The calculation is correct, we're just displaying a different number in the app. On the website, the displayed tag score is your answer score in that tag, and you can get the value for questions by hovering your mouse over the score value. In the app, we show the combined question-and-answer score. The tooltip of the android tag on your profile reads ...

According to the revision history, you just added that tag 14 hours ago. So, that tag isn't yet calculated for you since you haven't had any other questions under it. Tag scores are heavily cached. They are only updated once a day. Your tag scores should be updating sometime in the next 1 to 2 hours. They usually update sometime around midnight UTC. At that ...

Largest rectangular sub matrix with the same number was converted to a community wiki because you edited it too many times. Since Community wiki's don't count towards tag badges and that question was worth 13 upvotes. Your 103 went down by 13 to 90. So the amount is correct. You might be able uncommunity wiki it by flagging your question for moderator ...

Based on the answers to the following two questions, your tag score is based on the current tags of the question: Tag-badges exploit Can tag badges be gamed by editing the tags of a question which has an answer which was previously upvoted?

Yes. It doesn't matter who retags the question. If you have a non community wiki answer on a question with a tag it will count towards the score and answer totals for the tag badges. And, before anyone else comments - it is therefore theoretically possible to game the badge by adding a tag to a question where you have a highly up-voted answer. However, if ...

No, they do not update any more frequently, at least not globally. What does happen is the badge progress tracker keeps track of one tag badge in real time, and will update your tag score more frequently and award you the tag badge much sooner than waiting for the script if you qualify. But this only happens for the tag badge currently being tracked. (There ...

Here's what the numbers mean: 1k [discussion] x202 <- total posts, (including CW posts) under tag ^ |- total score of all non-CW answers under tag Deleted posts are not included in the calculations. Unless math has changed recently, 31 and 158 do not add up to 202. You have 13 CW posts under the discussion tag. 31 + 158 + 13 = 202. I agree ...

On second look, it's not related to cache. True, you got 9 upvotes but you also got 4 downvotes: 9 + (-1) + (-1) + (-2) = 5 Q.E.D Also worth to mention that the tag score title says "total score", not "total upvotes":

Tag scores are only updated once a day, they are not dynamic. All you have to do to see the correct scores is to way until the appropriate script runs on the backend (3am UTC I believe). There's nothing else you can or should do about it, except posting other good questions and answers in those tags, or improving the ones you already made, to get the tag ...

Based on my experience, the tag score update takes some time due to caching. Wait for a couple of days more and check. It should be updated by then. As per this answer, it is updated around 3:00 UTC.

In your activity page there is a tags tab. This lists all tags where you have had posts on. When you hover over number to the left of a tag a tooltip tells you all the stats for it:

Don't feel bad to provide an answer and edit the question tags, as long as the answer does actually answer the question and the tags are appropriate. It's "criminal" to introduce irrelevant tags or provide the answer just to gain some points towards the tag badge.

It's not. It's as if the answer never existed in the first place, so none of the votes on it count at all.

There is a technical difference between the rankings on Careers and those on SO top tags. Currently Careers only ranks you against other people on Careers. That being said, the distribution for most tags is reasonably close on Careers to what your top % would be for a tag on the whole of SO. It is actually on our list to change our ranking to be that of ...

Yes, your tag score will be increased. The purpose of tags is to get some order into the questions, so if a question should have a c# tag then you should retag it, it doesn't matter if you have an advantage from that or not. If the question does not have the correct tags, it will be "lost" because it will not be found when another one is searching for this ...

Note that tag synonyms are not applied retroactively1. They only affect new questions. So when B is made a synonym for A, any existing questions will still remain tagged as they are. That means your existing tag scores will be unchanged initially. However, during mass retags, users will often retag old questions from B to A manually (moderators have tools ...

If you hover the little score square, you will see that it shows scores individually for: Questions, and Answers So, even if you don't have a answer tag score, you can still see scores for questions* (which doesn't count for the badges)*

The scores(negative or positive) on deleted answers will not be calculated on tag scores. The tag scores are calculated on daily basis, so the tag score will be updated within a day of deletion.


4

Yes, your tag score is the total of the number of up and down votes you received on your answers in that tag. If you received a downvote, then your tag score goes down by 1. If you then delete your answer (or the question is deleted taking your answer along) then that answer no longer counts for your tag score. This goes for all votes for that answer, up ...

like there are for reputation Reputation score is updated live because it's essential part of Stack Exchange, seen and "used" by each and every user. That's why it's always visible, anywhere. But keeping it live isn't simple or cheap task, it required development time and consume resources. Tag score on the other hand is something important, but only for ...

Bronze badge requirement: You must have a total score of 100 in at least 20 non-community wiki answers to achieve this badge. This user has 8 posts in .net tag and 11 posts in linq tag. So requirement is not fulfilled. Regarding your edit: Tag scores are updated once a day. He earned 4 votes today that's why his score is 220 - 4 = 216 in his profile.

Yes retagging of questions will force a recalculate of the tag score. It might not happen immediately, but it does happen. It also means that if the retag causes you to no longer qualify for the tag badge, you will lose the tag badge.
