When I look here: it says that I have made 483 edits.

When I click on the "all" tab it says I've only made 482 edits.

How is that possible?

There are caches at play here, some for different lengths and hit/cached initially at different you'll see some slight temporary differences here and there. This is acceptable for us given the massive performance benefit, so this is .

I know that those pages use a cached value, as they are not immediately changed when you edit another posts. I guess it is caused from how the pages are cached, as I read the same value in both the tabs.
