I noticed that I recently obtained the "Autobiographer" badge, and three others, and somehow my badge count is still at 8 on the top of the page whereas it correctly displays 12 on my profile. My question may be naive, but why doesn't it show the correct count ?
Is it because of some caching and that it takes some time to update ? Is it because some badges are not "considered" enough to be counted in the total number of badges displayed ?
I guess the world will not change tomorrow if I get the answer, but I'm just curious :-)
Thank you for your answer.
