I'm participating a Private Beta of Ukrainian Language.StackExchange.

At some moment, I've visited the Site Tour, and BOOM! — all my badges displayed in the header frame are lost. They still exist in the corresponding section of profile.

I haven't logged out or something. The problem appeared immediately after I navigated away from Site Tour to another page.

To me, it looks like a bug. Is it?

I've seen similar posts here at Meta, but they all complain about losing badges after logging out and in or changing the way how to login.

    I was able to reproduce this. Viewing the tour page without the Informed badge does indeed cause your badge counts to be cleared out. The award function must be borked.

    Actually seems unrelated to the tour page. Any badge being awarded can trigger this. And we can likely blame Nick Craver.

    I poked Nick and he is digging into it.

This was a query issue with a major update I did - I have fixed the query and re-synced badge counts (which happens nightly as well). The heads up on a bug was much appreciated.
