Hey, @Scarlett_Darkhall. I'm not completely sure about the subject as I am not a moderator, and I became a member a long time ago. I'll tell you what I know. Basically, it will take a few days to achieve the member badge. When I first joined, @Jacoby_Elderfun1 told me that it would take a few days, but it felt like more than a few days! So, the badge could possibly take longer for some people? Sometimes badges are withheld because they think you shouldn't have the badge, but I don't think that's your case. Don't worry, just keep up the friendly posts and the badge should come sooner or later.
BTW, that's exactly what they said to me! (the emboldened sentence)
