I notice that not a single "Generalist" Badge has been awarded on this site. The way I understood may be incorrect. But I think quite a few would be eligible to get this badge.

    The 40th tag just hit 200 questions, and 19 people were awarded the first of the generalist badges today. Mar 18, 2016 at 11:53

This is not documented in an easy-to-find way, but a site must have at least 40 tags with 200+ questions in it before any Generalist badges are awarded. Since this site has only 27 tags with 200+ questions, the Generalist badge is not yet earnable.


You may be right. I ran a badge progress report using this script and it seems that I ought to have that badge, but don't.
