Badge Tracking Number in Avatar not Updating
« on: May 24, 2012, 11:37:22 AM »
I am not sure if this is the right place or not, but here's the problem.

My Forum avatar is located at  It currently indicates I have 1,164 badges.  However, I currently have 1,194.  See my page here at

I am not sure how often the avatar image gets updated, but I'm pretty sure I didn't jump from 1,164 to 1,194 overnight.  In fact, I think it's safe to say it's been a few months.  I only noticed the problem now because I post so rarely.

Can someone check to see if the avatar image updating program is running?  Much thanks. =)

EDIT: Looks like the same thing is going on with my badge tracking in the signature block.

I'm having the same problem.  My character has 1098 badges, but only 900 and something are listed here.  The Sentinel program says, "Online tracking is disabled" if that helps.

I believe I've fixed this. We'd made an internal change in CIT a while ago and hadn't realized that it would impact this code. Sorry about that!

Regarding how often the images are updated, the avatar images are dynamically generated with an HTTP header suggesting that the browser cache them for 30 seconds. So you should see changes to your badge total reflected immediately. (Note that only verified badges are counted.)
