Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I've earned 6 bronze badges in Area-51, but it shows 3 everytime, except when I go to a proposal page or discussion zone. May I know the reason behind that? Is it a bug?

It's the same as on 2.0 meta sites and has the same meta badge set. Just as on site metas the badges (with the exception of convention and quorum) are earned separately.

Your three badges on Area 51 (Pioneer, advocate and autobiographer) are both different and separate from the seven badges you have earned on the discussion zone, just as they would be on any other meta site. Pioneer and advocate are not available on discussion.

I'd be very surprised if this wasn't by-design =)

Phew and I thought it was a bug, and it's just me. Thanks!! – noob Feb 19 '12 at 19:05

First one is your main area51 user profile that refer to commitment proposal, example questions etc...

And the second one is the discussion user profile that refer to global Q&A you made.
