There appears to be a discrepancy between the badges displayed next to my username and the badges displayed on my profile page.

At the top of the page on M.SO I see 2(S) 13(B) (total:15), but on my profile page there are only 13 badges listed.

Similarly, on SO I see 14(S) 31(B) (total:45), but on my profile page it lists 46.

    My theory is that this is a side effect of the talkative badge.

    @waffles that perfectly explains what I am seeing on my end, but doesn't explain what Nathan is seeing. Dec 3, 2010 at 3:14

    This has been fixed going forward and the currently affected users will have badge counts synced later tonight. Dec 3, 2010 at 3:42
  • @TheUnhandledException Thanks- that is a definite improvement. @waffles I had a feeling it might be related to the 'talkative' badge. Thanks for clearing this up. Dec 3, 2010 at 5:18
  • @waffles +1 I'm experiencing the exact same thing, and it only started when I was awarded the Talkative badge. Dec 3, 2010 at 6:12

    23, hmm? Now if that isn't one for Welbog's conspiracy theories...
