I just noticed that the Badges page shows that many were just awarded to Diego:

enter image description here

If I check his profile it shows a very long list of recently awarded tag badges. While I am very happy for him (I would award all of them to him :-D), I think that he already had many of them, probably all of them.

I browsed through the Bronze tag badges page and found out that it is happening to other users as well:

Why is this happening? I don't see any pattern other than the two main users of the site plus a few random.

    Not only the bronze tag medals, but also the silver tag medals. And I suppose it would have been the same for the gold medals, if any would have been awarded so far. I was surprised when I saw all those medals being suddenly re-awarded to me. I tried to look for information in Meta.SE but I did not find anything.
