While it's possible there could be a slight delay in the badge being assigned out, reviewing through the example above the user might be seeing the expected behavior. Looking at the configuration of your "Author' mission the user is needing 3 more points to complete level 1. From the 2 actions tracked, creating content counts for 3 points, however tagging content only counts for 1 point. As such I would suggest having the user create a new piece of content to see if this awards the mission. If not, or you are not seeing points assigned, please submit a case in your secret customer group and the next available support engineer can assist with further investigations.
