This should be resolved. Lots more details on what happened and why are available on this answer.

Okay, I've done a bit of investigation here, inspired by Catija's suggestion that it might be related to recent participation and Brian Nickel's answer suggesting that causing changes might fix it. The first relevant thing to know is that "all the tag-related scripts run daily at 03:00 UTC." After not posting on Meta Stack Overflow since Jan 13, I ...

There's definitely an issue somewhere in the code and I've added this to our backlog. Determining a user's top tags is something too expensive to do on the fly, so we have a nightly job that calculates new totals for users and puts them in a denormalized table. At this time, there are no rows for your user. This could indicate that there's something wrong ...

On the per-site-metas there are reduced options available in your meta profile editor (English.SE) compared to your main profile editor (English.SE). From the description in your question it sounds like you are using the Stack Exchange profile editor (Network Profile) which only offers the "Update profile info" option. To use a more fully featured ...

The entire feature is just broken, it leaks information in far too many places. It is entirely trivial to discover the connections between hidden accounts, even by accident like in the network profile top posts tabs like you mentioned. But also intentionally if you know where to look for. And if you can use SEDE or the API, you can even do it systematically, ...

It's ... complicated. 37 posts edited indicates the number of distinct posts where you've edited the body or title, except your own posts. 42 is simply the number of your suggested edits that have been approved. If you edit, or suggest an edit to a post twice, that will count two times in the number of edit suggestions, but only once in the number of posts ...

You ask to disregard the beta sites, but there lies the answer, it's about how many have how much reputation; for the users to be able to assist in moderation, instead of leaving it to a drive-by CM or appointed moderator to handle everything that no one has permission to do. On older (and busier) sites there's enough traffic from people who have enough ...

Because it turned out that leaving the privilege at the default level caused problems. There were too many tags created wrongly; the site complained, and the Community Team adjusted the privilege levels. For an example, see this post on Mathematics Meta: Should rep requirements for tag creation be higher? So why does each site have milestones different to ...

Personally I'd avoid that term considering the site isn't a blog. Perhaps something like "active contributor" would be more fitting and that also nicely encompasses other activities you might perform like voting and reviewing the moderation queues.

Probably for seeing your declined/disputed/pending flags. Declined/disputed/pending flags are obviously not counted as "helpful" but users will still want to check the status of their flags. It would be a waste of developers time to run checks to see if there are any flags and grey the helpful flags button out in accordance with that. However, this ...
