14-summary = First retag
15-steps: Provide step by step instructions for to accomplish this.
16- Each step should be on a new line with a tab at the beginning, like this.
17-pitfalls: A set of things the user should avoid while perusing this accomplishment (each one added on a new line).
18+summary = To help users find questions of a certain type more quickly, questions have tags which categorize them. Users can edit tags to associate questions with the most relevant categories. This badge is awarded when a user does their first retag.
19+steps: Log into Ask Ubuntu and find a question which could use better tags.
20+ Click the "edit" link under the question to edit it. This lets you edit the tags.
21+ Click the X's on the right of pre-existing tags to remove them, and type in the tags box to search for and add tags.
22+ Click the "Save Edits" button under the Edit Summary box for your retag to take effect.
23+ Once the retag is saved, you will earn this badge.
24+tips: You can gain the privilege to retag questions at will once you have 500 reputation.
25+ Keep in mind that questions need at least one tag and no more than five.
26+ If several closely-related tags are used on the same question, you should see if you can just leave the most specific tag on the question and remove the others.
27+ "Meta" tags are tags which could apply to such a wide range of questions that they are not useful for categorization purposes. Examples include "error" and "help". If you see meta tags, be sure to remove them!
28+ You can create new tags if none of the pre-existing tags found in search quite describe the question. Note that you will first need 300 reputation to create new tags, however.
29+pitfalls: Removing relevant tags. Tags help users find certain kinds of questions faster, and if those tags aren't there, finding becomes more difficult. Remove tags only if you know they don't belong on that particular question.
30+ Adding redundant tags. Multiple tags which basically mean the same thing, when used together, simply use up space that could be used for other useful tags.

53-pitfalls: A set of things the user should avoid while perusing this accomplishment (each one added on a new line).
54+summary = Ask Ubuntu chat is a place to be used for collaboration, discussion and socialization. Users are encouraged to use chat as a supplement to the main site, such as for becoming better acquainted with fellow community members or for discussing questions when comments would not suffice. In addition, posts in chat are awarded stars by other chat users to mark them as notable. This badge is awarded when the user posts at least 10 messages in Ask Ubuntu chat which were starred by at least 10 other users.
55+steps: You need 20 reputation first before you can access Ask Ubuntu chat.
56+ You can enter Ask Ubuntu chat by clicking the "chat" link near the top of the Ask Ubuntu page. Note that you need to be logged in to use chat.
57+ Click any room you feel like participating in to enter it. Alternatively, you can create a new room if you have a certain topic which is not listed by any of the currently open rooms.
58+ Contribute to the discussion by entering messages into the box near the bottom of the screen, and clicking the "send" button or pressing Enter on your keyboard to send the message.
59+ Once you have sent 10 or more messages and at least ten different users have starred your messages, you will earn this badge.
60+tips: If you are new to chat or don't have a particular topic in mind, the Ask Ubuntu General Room is a good room to start in.
61+ To make your posts more likely to earn stars, try making your posts insightful or interesting.
62+ You will also earn the Talkative badge along the way to earning this badge.
63+pitfalls: Not staying ontopic in chat. Check the room topic before posting irrelevant messages, which can disrupt discussion. Keep general chat messages in the Ask Ubuntu General Room; other rooms are meant to be used specifically for their topics.
64+ Not adhering to community guidelines in chat. Chat has the same guidelines as the rest of Ask Ubuntu, is moderated and keeps a complete and open history of all messages posted. Please be respectful and courteous with your messages.
