I earned (or at least should have and seem to partially have been awarded) the Enthusiast badge on WebMasters. (Profile)

I have read this post and more specifically, this answer but I don't think it is the same thing. From what I can tell, I haven't lost any of the silver badges. I checked the question I earned the Enlightened badge for, and it is still the accepted answer and has 17 votes.

I have cleared my cache, refreshed, logged in from a computer that had never accessed WebMasters from, and I see the same thing.

Edit: The situation is the same on Meta.WebMasters in that it shows I have 0 silver badges, but also shows I've earned Enthusiast.

UPDATE: This seems to be a larger issue. I went with the wait-and-see tactic with the cooking site. The enthusiast badge was awarded with my 30th consecutive day. Since then, I've seen 0 silver badges at the top when I login, but at the bottom of my profile, I see the Enthusiast badge. I'm now at 43 days consecutive. On the cooking meta, I don't see the Enthusiast badge in either spot, so not sure about there.

  • The enthusiast badge has always been too enthusiast. – BalusC Aug 6 '10 at 17:40
  • @rchern is one of several who received the badge today, but the only one experiencing this problem. – Tim Post Aug 6 '10 at 17:49
  • @BalusC, per my profile: visited 30 days, 30 consecutive – Rebecca Chernoff Aug 6 '10 at 17:51
  • Badge summary updated. – Kevin Montrose Aug 6 '10 at 18:30
  • @Kevin, on the parent site, yup. Thanks. Is it just a wait kind of thing? I'll check meta tomorrow. What was so special about this particular badge/site combo that got messed up? – Rebecca Chernoff Aug 6 '10 at 18:31
  • @rchern - Not sure yet what caused the de-sync, it should fix itself with time in theory, though in your particular case I just hit a handy "resync" button. – Kevin Montrose Aug 6 '10 at 18:49

Your badge count will be updated when you get another badge. Apparently the Enthusiast badge doesn't recalculate the badge count.

I had the same issue as you, and the badge count was corrected when I earned a bronze badge.

  • Hmm, really? SO, MSO, and WA adjusted the counts I'm pretty sure. – Rebecca Chernoff Aug 20 '10 at 14:50
  • @rchern It took me a week to get my Enthusiast badge display in my badge count and it got display at the same exact moment I got the Organizer badge. – HoLyVieR Aug 20 '10 at 14:55
  • While I'm 99% sure the others have been correct, I've been awarded badges since so can't prove it. Howeven, on SO, I haven't been awarded a badge since the Enthusiast but my count is correct. – Rebecca Chernoff Aug 20 '10 at 15:11

Just hang tight for a little while. Many stat things are served out of caches. Eventually they'll catch up and the totals will match.

  • Just thought it was weird because I haven't had a problem with any other badges and I never got the notification bar telling me I had a new badge. – Rebecca Chernoff Aug 6 '10 at 17:38

    I got the same badge on the same site, and my totals match. So strange :) – Tim Post Aug 6 '10 at 17:49
