When I look here: http://stackoverflow.com/users?tab=editors&filter=year&search=neal 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?

Caching? I see 483 for both. – Pops Oct 31 '11 at 17:08
@PopularDemand hmmm i see 483 for both now too. odd, shouldnt they both come from the same database? – amanaP lanaC A nalP A naM A Oct 31 '11 at 17:10
They do, except some pages are more heavily cached then others, the home page being an example. – BinaryMisfit Oct 31 '11 at 18:01

There are caches at play here, some for different lengths and hit/cached initially at different times...so 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.
