I have 4 G + 36 S + 98 B badges. Should be a total of 138

The total number of badges was correct until about 3 days ago. Now it shows a total of 50 bagdes.


Maybe this is due to a recalc, but it has had the same wrong answer for several days now.

Where you see 50 badges? – Shadow Wizard Sep 23 '12 at 15:37
Above the badges section – Shiraz Bhaiji Sep 23 '12 at 15:40
So please add this to the question and also adding a screenshot is always a good idea. – Shadow Wizard Sep 23 '12 at 15:40

The number you are seeing is the total number of unique badges.

As you can see, for multiple badges of the same type, a number is displayed next to the badge.

Taking into consideration multiple badges of the same type, your grand total (at time of writing) is 138.

+1. Easy to do the math on the page, too, and confirm that the total is 138. – Aaron Bertrand Sep 23 '12 at 15:48
