Mismatch in tag’s Stats and Info page

There's either a problem with the mechanism that counts the up-votes on tags or there's a problem with the script that awards the badges.

According to https://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged?tagnames=.net&sort=info&pagesize=50 I've been:

upvoted 410 times on non community-wiki answers with this tag.

official up-votes

However, I haven't yet been awarded the [.net] silver badge. It's been a few days since I hit 400 according to this page but I wanted to wait a while in case there was a delay.

However, if I check with the so-tag-votes Greasemonkey script I get a total of only 400 votes (which I have just hit today):

Greasemonkey up-votes

So if the official tally is to be believed then there is a problem with the badge script/stored procedure has it hasn't awarded me the badge despite being being 10 votes over the total required for a few (at least 3) days now.

However, if the Greasemonkey script is correct (The version I've got can be found here) then the script hasn't run yet (which I can and do accept) but the code used to calculate the tally on the tag page is incorrect.

So which is it?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • What about requesting a recalc to settle that possible dust? – random Aug 22 '10 at 15:57
  • @random - so you're saying that both could be wrong. Interesting. I'll see what answers (if any) I get and leave it 24 hours to give the script chance to run. I've only just hit 400 according to the Greasemonkey script so in that sense I was a bit premature posting this, but I wanted to do it while I remembered. – ChrisF Aug 22 '10 at 16:02
  • As far as i recall its upvotes only for the tags info page and upvotes minus downvotes in the tag stats... can't find the last question for it right now. – Georg Fritzsche Aug 22 '10 at 16:04
  • @Georg - If that's the case then there's no problem! If you can find the reference post it as an answer and I'll accept it & just be more patient. – ChrisF Aug 22 '10 at 16:07

  • Just noticed it now says "You have a total score of 400 on non community-wiki answers with this tag" so everything matches now. Just have to wait for the badge... – ChrisF Aug 23 '10 at 13:47

The tag info pages shows only upvotes while the tag stats show upvotes minus downvotes (and the GM script calculates those values AFAIR) - see e.g. waffles answer here.

Adding to that that tag badges are awarded with a batch job there is no problem, just have a little patience :)

  • Thanks Georg. Answer accepted and I've voted to close my own question. – ChrisF Aug 22 '10 at 16:14
