Two Bugs With My Profile Page Answered

Alright, I've managed to discover two bugs with my profile page.

First off, (as you can see in the picture) In my profile it says I've recieved 2 DIY Patches from other members, but then right below the patches it says that my profile has only one patch on it. Can anyone explain this?

One more, when I click on the link where it says "You've Posted 19 Forum Topics" it takes me to a page showing the forum topics I've posted. But when I try to click on page two to see the rest of them it puts me back at my main profile page instead of displaying page two.

Patches:  The text could definitely use better wording.  The "DIY Patches" are images created by other (paid) users and sent to you, in this case by Lemonie and by Robot Love.  The "1 Patch" is called an "Achievement Patch" (which you'll discover by following the link), and is an award for winning a contest, or being featured in the newsletter, or something else.  The latter have been around a long time, while the former are a new invention rolled out with the paid-subscription thing.

Forum Topics: I don't see the same bug you report.  Could you try the following direct link (it's what the Next button generates) and see if it works, or if it also kicks you back to your profile page?

The DIY patches are from fellow members.  The "1 Patch" is from the site, typically as part of winning something.

When I look at your profile page, I only see the 2 DIY patches.

Compare with my own profile page...

Now that's weird.  The timestamp says you posted half an hour before I did, Kiteman.  However, for about an hour my post was the only one visible, and the orange box said "1 comment".  During that time, the forums' summary page said this topic had zero comments :-/

Stupid database caching....

Now, when I looked about 10 minutes after I posted, the list said zero comments, and the only one here was mine.

Odd.
