Default view only showing 2 poster avatars, unlike Discourse Meta

In my forum, I only see 2 user avatars next to the topic title & category…

unlike Discourse Meta which has up to 5.


It’s not a CSS or display issue. The rendered code via inspector shows there are actually only 2 avatars rendered on the markup. I can’t seem to find a setting or config to change this. Yesterday as I was playing with import, delete, import, delete, I did indeed see 5 avatars next to the active posts like this:



Sounds like something tweaky is going on? There are daily reconciliation tasks to fix any data oddities and also statistics tasks that run as well.

Hmmm… maybe I’m trying too hard. Yes, lots of import, delete, repeat. Here’s what I’m doing, for the record. Thanks to a modified version of @lead4good here

#I am running from /var/discourse/myscripts
require_relative '../discourse/config/environment' 

cnt = 0
Topic.find_each do |t|
# Earlier topics ok to keep like FAQ, Welcome, etc.
# t.user_id -2 is discobot. I don't want to delete all 
#  of the "Greetings" topics for my new users
  if > 6 && t.user_id != -2 
    puts "Topic: #{}, #{t.title}, #{t.user_id}"
	cnt = cnt +1
puts "Deleted #{cnt} topics where > 6 && t.user_id != -2"

Whatever it was, it’s fixed overnight. Any way to trigger the task via Sidekiq?
