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

There a ton of discrepancies between my discussion user profile and my main user profile on Area 51.

The Discussion user page states I have 2 profile views, 2 badges, visited 10 days, and been a member for 3 months (at the time of writing this).

The Main user page states I have 5 profile views, 4 badges, visited 32 days, and been a member for 2 months (at the time of writing this).

Is this by design or a bug?

It's by design. Statistics are captured independently for Area 51 proper and the Discussion site, and each site additionally has its own distinct set of badges [1], [2] (which sometimes causes confusion).

Thanks! I had never realized there was any difference. – TronicZomB May 20 '13 at 15:48
