Once I saw that order of Top Answers on https://stackoverflow.com/tags/[tag]/info and All time Answerers on https://stackoverflow.com/tags/[tag]/topusers were different

I believe it happened, when several top answerers had the same number of total score, but different number of answers.

    Would help if you mentioned which tag so we could look at it... I'm not seeing any issues just browsing a few random ones...

  • It happened on this tag - stackoverflow.com/tags/iphone-privateapi/info, but it's not there anymore (because total score is different). Mar 3, 2013 at 4:14

A lot of statistics on tag pages are periodically calculated and cached, they will sometimes disagree just because the caches are a little out of sync with each other.
