Helper Badge page stuck/weirded

Noticed that the numbers on the Helper Badges page have been static the past few days.

Also, something odd: the count associated with the "Helper:" badge on my page has strangely changed from a low-6-digit figure to 55,656.

The page, for reference:


I don't track mine regularly so I can't say how or when they've changed; has the total always excluded the "Voting" types (which are now separately totaled)?

>1 davidgn: Where do you see this number, 55,656? I don't see that anywhere on here: https://www.librarything.com/profile/davidgn/stats/badges

>3 lorannen: Now it's 55,729.

So, I guess they are changing, just not correctly.

CK edits is 101,435 on https://www.librarything.com/home#helpers , 101,437 on https://www.librarything.com/zeitgeist/combiners_alltime , and 94,486 on https://www.librarything.com/profile/davidgn/stats/badges . That's just bizarre.

>4 davidgn: I'm still not sure where you're looking at that number. Is it on a particular badge?

>5 davidgn: That's a discrepancy I can check, and I do see the same discrepancies you've mentioned here. I tried clearing your member caches and that doesn't seem to have fixed it, although I do want to note that, by the time I looked, your Helpers module on your home page was showing 101,436 (having increased by one). All other numbers are as you've mentioned in >5 davidgn:, though.

lorannen (#6):

He said in the very first post that it's the "Helper" count. The one that's supposed to be a sum, but which excludes Voting and which still doesn't give the correct total even accounting for that.

"Helper for contributions to any area of LibraryThing".
