On Stack Overflow, the reputation section under my Profile -> Activity shows my progress towards my next tag badge.

But on Retrocomputing, this section is blank (since I just hit 5k to earn my last privilege):


What is the criteria to show tag badge progress in this section?

The criteria is that the tag needs to be eligible for badges. According to this post, a tag needs to be used on at least 100 questions in order for tag badges to be granted. Our most popular tag, , has been used 73 times.

  • Ah of course. I figured there was a meta SE post about this, I just couldn't find it. Thanks!
