I found some other questions about badge count but they all were either
- status completed
- or referred to cached counts being too low for a while
Yesterday I had 4 gold meta badges. Thanks to the tireless efforts of gnat, I knew I was close to Great Question. This morning sure enough, I have it. But the top summary says 6 gold.
To answer possible objections:
- there is not a sixth badge a little further down if I just scrolled
- I did not get any of those twice
- I am pretty sure Great Question doesn't count for 2 badges :-)
How can the counts get out of sync like this - and especially how can the summary end up too high?
