Stack Apps is a question and answer site for apps, scripts, and development with the Stack Exchange API. It's 100% free, no registration required.

The descriptions associated to tag-based badges are wrong, they always show 0 instead of actual thresholds:

Earned at least 0 total score for at least 0 non-community wiki answers in the … tag

See few examples by using the API. See more examples.

7 months and nobody fixed? Is there any way to contact someone like a developer or something? –  Nicos Karalis Dec 8 '14 at 19:56

Thanks for the update @BrockAdams, I checked a few months ago and there were still 0, the number are correct now. Feel free to add an answer. –  A.L Jun 24 at 15:42

This seems to have been silently/magically fixed in the last 7 months (Date of Nicos Karalis' comment).

Descriptions seem correct now. I had verified that they weren't correct when I upvoted this question on Apr 29 '14.


Side note: It's not documented, but apparently tag-based badges are not listed unless they have been awarded at least once.

Take a look at /2.2/badges?inname=python-3&site=stackoverflow:

//-- "link" and "badge_id" lines removed for clarity/space.
{
  "items": [
    {
      "badge_type": "tag_based",
      "award_count": 2,
      "rank": "gold",
      "description": "Earn at least 1000 total score for at least 200 non-community wiki answers in the <a href=\"/questions/tagged/python-3.x\" class=\"post-tag\" title=\"show questions tagged &#39;python-3.x&#39;\" rel=\"tag\">python-3.x</a> tag",
      "name": "python-3.x"
    }, {
      "badge_type": "tag_based",
      "award_count": 14,
      "rank": "silver",
      "description": "Earn at least 400 total score for at least 80 non-community wiki answers in the <a href=\"/questions/tagged/python-3.x\" class=\"post-tag\" title=\"show questions tagged &#39;python-3.x&#39;\" rel=\"tag\">python-3.x</a> tag",
      "name": "python-3.x"
    }, {
      "badge_type": "tag_based",
      "award_count": 89,
      "rank": "bronze",
      "description": "Earn at least 100 total score for at least 20 non-community wiki answers in the <a href=\"/questions/tagged/python-3.x\" class=\"post-tag\" title=\"show questions tagged &#39;python-3.x&#39;\" rel=\"tag\">python-3.x</a> tag",
      "name": "python-3.x"
    }, {
      "badge_type": "tag_based",
      "award_count": 1,
      "rank": "bronze",
      "description": "Earn at least 100 total score for at least 20 non-community wiki answers in the <a href=\"/questions/tagged/python-3.4\" class=\"post-tag\" title=\"show questions tagged &#39;python-3.4&#39;\" rel=\"tag\">python-3.4</a> tag",
      "name": "python-3.4"
    }, {
      "badge_type": "tag_based",
      "award_count": 1,
      "rank": "bronze",
      "description": "Earn at least 100 total score for at least 20 non-community wiki answers in the <a href=\"/questions/tagged/python-3.3\" class=\"post-tag\" title=\"show questions tagged &#39;python-3.3&#39;\" rel=\"tag\">python-3.3</a> tag",
      "name": "python-3.3"
    }
  ],
  "has_more": false,
}

Note that there are no silver or gold badges listed for either python-3.3 or python-3.4.
And these badges haven't been earned yet.
