I tried to see how close I was to 200 answers in tag, and realized that, despite answering a bunch of Qs last couple of days, I was still at the same 170 answers as per "Top Users" list in Harry Potter tag page as I was a couple of days ago.

This seems off, and is confirmed by the fact that searching for my total Harry Potter posts brings up 250 as of now; whereas Top Users list has me at 170A+74Q=244 posts.

Why is the Top Users statistics off?

While the Top Users page is cached and won't immediately update, it's not off. You also mentioned the following:

170 answers + 74 question isn't 144 posts, it's 244 (far closer to what you expected).

And in fact, it currently reports:

  • 173 answers
    Top Harry Potter Answerers

  • 78 questions
    Top Harry Potter Askers

Which corresponds exactly to what you currently have:

  • Do you have the caching rules by any chance? – DVK-on-Ahch-To Jun 16 '12 at 10:02
  • @DVK The same as every other cached page? You missed the entire point of my post, which was that you added wrong: this is a non-issue. You had 251 posts in harry-potter, which is what Top Users reports. – user366 Jun 16 '12 at 10:05
  • Please don't concentrate on the obvious typo. 244!=250, that was the point of my question. The issue is obviously caching. – DVK-on-Ahch-To Jun 16 '12 at 12:28
  • As a more recent example, right now the search shows me with 182 answers in harry-potter, and the users page with the same 173 as your answer – DVK-on-Ahch-To Jun 16 '12 at 23:12
