…And so did 43 other folks. Simultaneously. How does that happen?
The site itself only just met the minimum qualifications to award the Generalist badge:
One thing the badge doesn’t say, is that there must be at least 200 questions in all 40 of the top tags before this badge is awarded to anyone. ... I don’t feel you can accurately measure a generalist until the top tag list settles down.
Approximately seven minutes ago a script ran and noticed that RPG.se finally reached 200 questions in all 40 of the top tags. Congratulations, us!
Simultaneously, everyone who had already qualified for the badge was finally awarded it.
… This is one of those badges that works much more as-advertised on larger sites like Stack Overflow.
As a point of trivia, the threshold seems to have been crossed by the “graduation” of the movement tag. It seems to have crossed the threshold when I edited Can I use Lightning Lure as a grappling hook? to include the tag.
Interestingly, that seems to have put the tag to 201 questions, not 200, and the script didn't trigger on 200. I suspect there is an off-by-one error in the Generalist badge that actually makes it need 201 questions in the top 40 tags, rather than 200.
