I earned 23 badges in my Stack Overflow account, 17 unique badges and 6 revival badges. The total is 23 badges but the problem is that it shows 22 badges. Why?

What did you think the number next to the silver dot meant, out of curiosity? – jmort253 Jun 26 '12 at 7:52
1. yellow dot represents gold badges. 2. gray dot represents silver badges 3. brownish dot represents bronze badges. Hand hover on those dots. – Somnath Muluk Jun 26 '12 at 8:31
Or even, the gold dot represents gold badges, etc :) – AakashM Jun 26 '12 at 9:05
That is an epic fail for ummm.... failing. At basic math. Personally I want my badge count in hex, imagine the trouble that would cause when it came time to sum them. – slugster Jun 26 '12 at 9:26
