I still have some work to do before reaching the PostgreSQL gold badge, so I chose it as the one for tracking. Unfortunately, it seems to be stuck. See the screenshot below:

I am not posting about anything else than Postgres (except comments), don't get many upvotes on answers on other topics (or question in general), so I was expecting the counter advancing nearly linearly with my reputation changes. But it does not happen:

Please note that between taking the two screenshots, two days passed - so it's not like not waiting enough for the updates to be triggered.

Meanwhile, in the top users view of the postgresql tag, I seem to have accumulated some 221 answers with a total score of 727.

I experienced the same issue while tracking my gold SQL Server tag. I needed to reselect the badge from the tracker for it to actually update the graph.

This has been asked-and-answered at "Next tag badge" panel score and answers counter discrepancy - unfortunately, the answer is the workaround I talked about above.

I suppose since this was marked as a bug, it might get some attention in 6-8 weeks.

    Thanks for the tip. On the other hand, that question is already nearly four months old - it's more than 6-8 weeks. Should I be pessimistic? :) Feb 5, 2016 at 15:11

    Yes. Be very pessimistic.
