For some reason, does not show up in the "Track your next tag badge" widget:

Screenshot of the tag selector when searching for "mass-effect". It's empty.

I have a lot more progress towards than towards any of these tags:

Screenshot of the tag selector with a bunch of random tags, for which I have very little progress.

So what gives? Why can't I track the badge that I actually have a chance of getting?

Per the main Meta post on tag badges:

What tags are eligible for badges?

A tag must appear on a minimum of 100 questions to be eligible for tag badges.

We currently have 68 questions, so I'm guessing the system doesn't track an ineligible badge.

All the other tags in your screenshot have more than 100 questions (so are eligible).

  • Ah, so I don't have a chance of getting it any time soon. Well, that's a bit demoralizing. Oh well.

    @Kevin 32 questions doesn't seem that much to go on, though I guess that depends on how you define "soon". Hook some friends into it and point them to SFF afterwards ;P (or, don't forget that you can come up with questions and self-answers of your own, that's encouraged by SE - provided they're of quality, of course)
