Recently I was awarded a Research Assistant badge but I would not think that I've edited 50+ tag wikis. If I'm right creating a new tag with only an excerpt creates an empty tag wiki description too.

An answer about this badge on StackOverflow Meta mentions that

the badge counts distinct tag wikis you edit excluding excerpts.

So, creating a new wiki summary without description counts in the Research Assistant badge by design or is it just a bug?

  • \$\begingroup\$ Yeah, looks like you only created 18 actual wiki edits. \$\endgroup\$ – Adam Lear Jul 5 '12 at 20:35

At the moment we are not going to implement this because evaluating the content of each edit to determine only the significant ones would generate 3 times the SQL load for little gain.


We've found a way (kudos Nick Craver) to implement this more efficiently and it will be rolled out in the next deployment. Old awarded badges will not be revoked.
