I recently earned a the privilege to "Create tag synonyms" here on meta. However, the notification in my achievements inbox is half in English and half in what I believe is Russian.

Half English, half Russian inbox message.

I opened this message on Arqade, which is an English site, and the privilege is for me which is also an English site, so I have no idea why half of the message is in Russian.

    Very old bug that was never fixed, let me find the dupe. Edit: well it happened before (and many more) but all wrongly marked as completed, so not closing as duplicate. Oct 20, 2023 at 10:46

    @ShadowWizardIsSadAndAngry That seems to be from caching between sites with 2 different languages, however the site I got it on and the site I viewed it on are both English, so definitely related, but maybe not the same.

    I don't think it's just for you, looks like the first user who viewed that notification after cache reset did it here on MSE, while having account in Russian language site. Oct 20, 2023 at 10:59
