"For Sale Forum Category Rules" has -1 replies Answered

I was looking around in the forums on December 22, 2008 and I noticed a strange glitch. The "For Sale Forum Category Rules" had -2 replies. I made a comment and the counter went up to -1. Strange?

Thanks for noticing this. There's a bug in the counting algorithm as you may have guessed; it is fixed in the next release which will be out in about another week.

I second Nacho :-) I'd be more than happy to hammer at your new features, if you wish.

> the next release which will be out in about another week . . If you have a beta site for the new release, I'm volunteering to try to crash it.

Darn! I was hoping it was more interesting -- like maybe that topic had gotten more than 2 billion comments, and you used a signed int for the counter :-)

Have you bothered to keep track of exactly which four days those were? Perhaps on Monday, after this holiday week...

I noticed the glitch on December 22, 2008. It is still there today (December 27, 2008) under Community > Marketplace > For sale.

Yes. And did you notice the dates in between? December 23 -- well, maybe folks were working that day. December 24 December 25 December 26 -- well, maybe folks were working that day. You figure out the other two days for yourself.
