I have four badges in Lifehacks Meta. When I visit the site, they're not beside my user profile at the top of the page. If I enter the Help center and click on Tour, they reappear. It doesn't happen on any of my other sites. Is this a bug?


You have four badges on the regular Lifehacks site. You have no badges (though you'll likely get one, since I upvoted your question) on Lifehacks Meta.

Even though reputation on Main and Meta sites are the same (since, barring MSE, there isn't any rep on Meta sites), badges are counted separately. (see here for why)

The reason clicking on the "Tour" restores your badges is because the "Tour" takes place on the Main site, not on the Meta site.
