Incorrect Topic Count on User Profile


So I as checking out the new User Directory, and I decided to compare my stats on that page against the stats shown on my profile page. That when I noticed that the topic counts were off. Instead of trusting that one was right over the other, I went ahead and counted the listed topics. To my surprise, the profile page was wrong. Screenshots are below (values expected to have changed after creation of this topic):

Edit: Edited profile screenshot to emphasize bug.

Disregard me, I’m obviously lacking my caffeine intake today :smile:


I have a similar issue - 20 shows up in the menu, but 19 actual topics in the list and in the user directory.

How many PMs/flags do you have? Might be something there.

How often is the data that ends up on that page updated?

Just made two posts to try.d and I didn’t appear in the list at all:

@eviltrout caching issue? or are we counting deleted topics?

The user page wasn’t correctly respecting a user’s ability to view their own topics with respect to visibility. I’ve got a fix here:

The directory is updated about once an hour.


5, 2 started by me. So that doesn’t appear to be it. I didn’t think that would be it anyway since they are counted separately.


This appears to be fixed. Could we get this topic closed?

You can also use flag to moderators to ask for a topic to be closed.
