See these three pages:

tag badges

All three of them say:

Earned at least X total score for at least 20 answers in the tag.

This same text also appears on the tooltip for the tag badge:

Also note the double colon after 'gold badge'

As well as on these pages:

tag badges

But the badges page clearly states:

  • Bronze Badge: You must have a total score of 100 in at least 20 non-community wiki answers to achieve this badge.
  • Silver Badge: You must have a total score of 400 in at least 80 non-community wiki answers to achieve this badge.
  • Gold Badge: You must have a total score of 1000 in at least 200 non-community wiki answers to achieve this badge.

Edit:

It has been noted in the comments that other users see different numbers in these pages, but in all cases it appears they see the same number of answers are required for all tag badge description, regardless of the badge's type.

    I see Earned at least 1000 total score for at least 200 answers in the c# tag. and Earned at least 400 total score for at least 200 answers in the c# tag respectively. Another caching ghost? Commented Dec 12, 2013 at 14:54

    So different people see different counts, probably based on the order in which they view the pages.. Commented Dec 12, 2013 at 14:56
  • I'm pretty sure I checked the gold one first, though.

  • @3ventic: Who said I checked the gold page first? :-P Commented Dec 12, 2013 at 14:57
  • I think this is a better example (screenshot) Commented Dec 12, 2013 at 14:58

  • @Martijn no-one did, but it would make sense for the first page to stick its correct value, wouldn't it?

  • @3ventic: If this is cached on load-balanced caching servers, and all 3 of us are hitting a different caching server, then it could be that the first cache miss determined the count being displayed for the rest of the pages. Commented Dec 12, 2013 at 14:59
  • @ShaWizDowArd: I see '200' as the required count on all 5 tabs. Commented Dec 12, 2013 at 15:00
  • Descriptions shouldn't be cached in the first place..

  • @3ventic: They are adding localisation everywhere, and from this bug we learn that descriptions are being cached separately. The description is variable across languages.. Commented Dec 12, 2013 at 15:01
