Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 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 appears to be a discrepancy between the badges displayed next to my username and the badges displayed on my profile page.

At the top of the page on M.SO I see 2(S) 13(B) (total:15), but on my profile page there are only 13 badges listed.

Similarly, on SO I see 14(S) 31(B) (total:45), but on my profile page it lists 46.

My theory is that this is a side effect of the talkative badge. – waffles Dec 3 '10 at 3:13

@waffles that perfectly explains what I am seeing on my end, but doesn't explain what Nathan is seeing. – The Unhandled Exception Dec 3 '10 at 3:14

This has been fixed going forward and the currently affected users will have badge counts synced later tonight. – Kevin Montrose Dec 3 '10 at 3:42
    
@TheUnhandledException Thanks- that is a definite improvement. @waffles I had a feeling it might be related to the 'talkative' badge. Thanks for clearing this up. – Nathan Taylor Dec 3 '10 at 5:18
    
@waffles +1 I'm experiencing the exact same thing, and it only started when I was awarded the Talkative badge. – Valentin Flachsel Dec 3 '10 at 6:12

I am seeing a similar issue:

1+4+18=23

23!=24

23, hmm? Now if that isn't one for Welbog's conspiracy theories... – balpha Dec 3 '10 at 9:05
