In my Badges list, I have 1 gold badge (Famous Question).

enter image description here

In the "select your next badge" popup it said I have earned only one gold badge (Electorate), and the Famous Question badge doesn't show up.

enter image description here

The badge tracking bar it has only 1 gold badge:

Does anyone know why this happens?

Edit: My badge tracking bar just showed 2 Gold badges.

  1. You can't track the Famous Question badge; basically, you cannot track badges which pertain to a single post. Some others might be too expensive (in terms of system performance) to track. See this Meta Stack Exchange answer for more details.
  2. The badge tracker says you've earned the Electorate badge, but that's not completely true; right now you qualify for it, but badges aren't awarded real-time; there's a script which awards them, but it runs at regular intervals. Therefore, the badge count in your profile isn't updated either. See the FAQ on Meta Stack Exchange for more details.
