Bronze tag badges are seemingly created automatically and awarded once the requirements are met. The requirements are described in the HelpCenter as:

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

The mechanism has worked flawlessly on a couple of other tags but, unless I oversaw something, has failed for despite a current total score of 111 on 42 non-wiki-answers.

Whether this results from some disturbances during site graduation or has other reasons is beyond my knowledge. Anyway, I'd like to see the issue solved.


It appears that the reason it has not been awarded to you yet, is another criteria, from the Tag Badges page, on the right-hand column, it says:

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.

The photchemistry tag has only 64 questions so far

  • $\begingroup$ I sense that as a big problem of SE. Anything about the sites that isn't in the help center is very hard to find out, even with a considerable amount of searching. Even though the Tag Badges page is some kinda a help center itself. $\endgroup$
