  • Do you know how many articles you contributed and edited? It looks like a bug (but bug in your favor).

  • It still looks like a bug. There are number of various bugs related to articles and achievements.

  • I've seen a number of bugs where people get credit for Wiki activity by mistake. However, then the statistics (though wrong) explain the achievements. This is a different case I have never seen, where the statistics do not justify the achievements.

    In other cases, I've noticed that the dates for the gold, silver, and bronze achievements are the same (or very close), which makes me think a clean up operation tried to fix old problems so the achievements were awarded at the same time, even though they couldn't have been achieved at the same time. Are the dates in this case close?

  • Yes, looks like a bug which was later corrected when a single new article was counted multiple times. The bug was corrected in the number of articles, but not in the achievements. 

    I guess you may want to send this to fissues at microsoft dot com to let them know this particular bug.

    BTW, I think I could have been affected by this bug myself. I only started a single article (which I never actually finished and don't know what happened to it), but it counted many times in my profile.

  • There was a somewhat related bug recently where TechNet Wiki edits were getting counted as new articles in the profile page, but it was supposed to have been fixed.  I haven't verified if it has been.

  • As of yesterday the related bug (Wiki article edits counted as new articles) had not been corrected. It seems like most of my Wiki article edits get counted as new articles in my profile activities and in my statistics. They are working on this bug.

  • As Richard mentions, if it's related then it's being worked on.

    Do you have a link to that user's profile? I'd like to submit it as an example.

    Thanks!
