In Help Center > Badges one finds rules of earning tag badges:

  • Bronze Badge

You must have a total score of 100 in at least 20 non-community wiki answers to achieve this badge.

  • Silver Badge

You must have a total score of 400 in at least 80 non-community wiki answers to achieve this badge.

  • Gold Badge

You must have a total score of 1000 in at least 200 non-community wiki answers to achieve this badge.

So far, I've earned 5 bronze badges in functions, calculus-and-analysis, equation-solving, plotting and list-manipulation tags.

I'm curious why I still haven't earned a bronze badge in polynomials tag. There I have 23 answers and over 100 total upvotes. Similarily, in algebraic-manipulation tag I have 20 answers and more than 100 total upvotes.

Could you explain if the tag badges rules have been fulfilled in case of e.g. polynomial tag?

I really don't miss much those badges, I just simply want to understand the stackexchange rules.

  • @rm-rf Info from sidebar is not all. There is gold badge for list-manipulation while plotting has more questions. – Kuba Jul 20 '13 at 10:51
  • @Kuba The sidebar describes the requirements for a tag to be eligible for any badge. Once it is eligible, the gold/silver/bronze badges depend on the users' score. In this case, it so happened that Mr.Wizard got to 1000 votes and 200 answers in list-manipulation first before plotting. Note that it is and – I'll hit 1000 votes in list-manipulation very soon, but I won't get a gold badge yet since I still have a little over 50 answers that I need to write in order to be eligible :/ – rm -rf Jul 27 '13 at 2:04

The tag itself should have a minimum of 100 questions to be awarded any badge. You'll get all eligible badges when each of them reach 100 questions. This is explained in the sidebar

These badges are awarded for participating in non community-wiki questions with particular tags. If enough votes are earned in a tag with 100+ total questions, the badge will be automatically created and awarded.
