I have a general question about how topic tags become associated with a vote-based badge. For instance, if I receive 100 upvotes on answers for at least 20 non-community wiki answers with the associated the tag , then I get a bronze astrophysics badge.

In contrast, if I get (currently) 103 upvotes on 31 non-community answers associated with the tag, I see no bronze badge.

How are tag badges created/formed for a given tag?

has 80 questions, and tag badges are only awarded for tags which are used on 100 or more questions. Consequently, you also can't track a tag badge for in your profile.
