I see the Cache Owner badge on my profile and it says I have 105 caches.  My geocaching.com profile say I shows I have hidden 109.  Just wondering if there is a bug and it is not recognizing some of my caches hides. Is it possible it is not including my 4 events? If that is the case then maybe a note is needed saying "Excluding Event caches".

To answer your question: no it does not include events but instead they are included in The Event Host badge.  I found a thread that answers that question https://project-gc.com/qa/?qa=23126/cache-owner-badge-not-including-events&show=23126#q23126.

Regarding the note idea, it might not hurt to include language in the Wiki link https://project-gc.com/w/The_Cache_Owner that says events are counted separately under a different badge called The Event Host.

Wiki page now updated toclarify this.
Thank you TigreToot and Optimist on the run, I assumed as much it just was not obvious.
Thank you Optimist on the run for adding the language to the Wiki.
