I think i may have a solution, and it ties in with my already proven "patches theory." basically, if u have a patch, then the patch renders your orange board "broken." it is a problem that has happened to many people, including me, and the way i fixed it was that i got rid of my patch.
 
if u don't have a patch right now, and u once did, then i believe that the comment ccumber disappearing is a procrastinated bug. in other words, the bug takes place a while after the patch is given.

to be honost, i think the patches are lame, as they do not mean anything at the slightest, and they ruin all orangeboards unless u pay instrucatbles. good marketing technique, bad for the "normal" users of this site.

I hope this helped! :)

yeah, never got a patch....
oh really? in that case, i believe it may be a glitch in the system. it happened to me as well, so i believe it may be credited to interactions from "PRO" members.
 
i don't want to blame everything on them, but so far, my patches theory has been confirmed, and i believe that the going pro addition to this site may have caused this bug.

hmmmm, interesting....
I just checked my comment counter, and it is back up and running... with the incorrect number of comment count. I had over 1500 comments before, it shows only 600 some.

oh nooos!
i see that you comment counter is back up and running. is it the correct count? If it isn't, then i believe it may just be a reoccuring bug in the system that just affects people at random.

OKAY!!!!
It happened to me too. probably due to some addition to the sight that put things out of whack. It sucks I know, but we'll just have to grin and bear it.
