The current badge description is misleading. It currently reads: RESEARCH ASSISTANT Edited 50 tag wikis.
I had thought it strange that only two users had achieved this silver badge, but thought that I would give it a go anyways. So for the past few weeks, I have been diligently looking for tags that have no write-ups at all and have been (I thought) reasonably starting where one ought to start on a wiki, with the most basic component of the wiki, the excerpts.
After 53 edits and some wondering and waiting... I finally went hunting for an answer as to why this badge might not have been awarded to me and came across @Jeff's meta question Is there a bug with the populist badge?
...then reading down through the answers found @Gilles's link to List of all badges with full descriptions
...then scrolling through the badges finally found the answer to my dilema, namely, that there is MORE to the badge requirements than is currently listed on the SF&F site:
- silver; awarded once
- Edit 50 different tag wiki bodies
- Edits to tag wiki excerpts do ^not count
- Source: badge announcement MSO post by waffles
Therefore, it seems clear to me that our site is missing the key info that edits must be to bodies and that tag wiki excerpts do not count. Could this be added please? Thx.
