How does the computation of the badge Research Assistant work? Is the count 1:1 on each tag or is the Excerpt section separate giving the total of 2 if you edit both content and excerpt?

1 Answer 1


The Research Assistant tag is only related to the body text, not the excerpt.

This is a link to the Stack Overflow Meta post when this badge was introduced that gives you more information.

There is another post on MSO about this too.
