Noticed this while on the Android app (tablet=Nexus 7) - this user's badges show up as asterisks.

enter image description here

But when I looked at their profile, they have in actuality a lot less badges than I was led to believe!

Could it be a caching issue?

The "lot less badges" is by design, in the profile page it's showing only "distinct" badges so for example Jon Skeet has 4838 bronze badges right now, however 4360 of those are one single nice answer badge awarded multiple times. By the way who's that user? –  Shadow Wizard Aug 6 '13 at 13:45

This was an oversight - those badges are actually placeholders that we're using in our layout. Braggers happens to be a deleted user therefore we have no record for these badges. It will be fixed in version v0.1.4
