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? – Martijn Pieters Dec 12 '13 at 14:54

    So different people see different counts, probably based on the order in which they view the pages.. – Martijn Pieters Dec 12 '13 at 14:56
  • I'm pretty sure I checked the gold one first, though. – 3ventic Dec 12 '13 at 14:56
  • @3ventic: Who said I checked the gold page first? :-P – Martijn Pieters Dec 12 '13 at 14:57
  • I think this is a better example (screenshot) – ShaWiz Dec 12 '13 at 14:58
  • @ShaWizDowArd Thanks, I've noted that as well. – p.s.w.g Dec 12 '13 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 Dec 12 '13 at 14:59
  • @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. – Martijn Pieters Dec 12 '13 at 14:59
  • @ShaWizDowArd: I see '200' as the required count on all 5 tabs. – Martijn Pieters Dec 12 '13 at 15:00
  • Descriptions shouldn't be cached in the first place.. – 3ventic Dec 12 '13 at 15:00
  • @3ventic: They are adding localisation everywhere, and from this bug we learn that descriptions are being cached separately. The description is variable across languages.. – Martijn Pieters Dec 12 '13 at 15:01
  • @ShaWizDowArd screenshot – 3ventic Dec 12 '13 at 15:01
  • @3ventic server side cache, used for localization... for each language they have different message so something there got bugged – ShaWiz Dec 12 '13 at 15:01

    Regarding double colon, it's already reported. – ShaWiz Dec 12 '13 at 16:00
