Badges on US site not UK

I am a little confused as to my knowledge I only ever use the Uk tomshardware site where it shows badges x 1. But by accident I logged into the US site and found Badges x 2 and to my knowledge I only have only ever logged into the uk site, so please someone tell me how did this happen.

I have read that the sites are kept seperate and when you only use one and not the other and get awards for a site you don't use then it becomes a little confusing.

Why are the sites kept seperate anyways ? Call me thick if its a simple answer but US and UK same language e.t.c. The only thing different as I understand is time zones and currency.

  1. It has been an on going issue with the UK site being very buggy. I haven't heard anyone being able to explain it outside of UK being very buggy. Our hope is once the major changes take place in the forum next month (what I've heard mentioned), things will be better.
  2. Thanks for the update
  3. It's due to there being two different servers and the UK one has never really played nice with the US one but for some reason BoM won't/can't just switch off the UK server and let us use the US one by default so even if you log onto the US server from the UK as soon as you enter one of the sub forums you get redirected back to the UK one.
  4. I have the exact same problem. UK site shows I've got only one Badge :(
    US shows 3 :)
    I hate being redirected between .com and .co.uk
  5. Yep, hopefully one of the 'major changes' that tecmo mentioned coming up next month will address this, however remember badges are really of little importance.
  6. It makes you feel better ;)
  7. Gah, you just pulled me into the UK forum!!! :lol:
  8. do badges allocate on the us and uk server coherently ?
