Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

Yes, this isn't the first question about this, but since this one is already answered, I'm asking a new question.

Two days ago I got a badge on SO for Popular Question. That badge appeared at the bottom of my profile, but wasn't counted at the top. Therefore, I know have 15 bronze badges at the top and 16 at the bottom. According to Jeff Atwood's answer the count should be correct after maximum 24 hours.

Well, it's not.

I know how to update the reputation counter, but that didn't update the badge counters. Furthermore, note that I haven't lost any badges.

To me this sounds like a bug. If it's "by design" as I read it here then please add some functionality to recalculate it.

According to your profile, you have 15 bronze and 1 silver badge. So the 15 is correct.

oh my... After two cups of coffee I noticed that 15+1=16 *sigh* Maybe I should go home and get some sleep... – sjngm Jan 20 '11 at 9:03
