Yeah, you are. I see 1. Not -1. It's the jumjum

But if you had taken the time to look at the thread in mention you would have seen it currently has 2 replies, which explains why it now shows up in the overview with 1 reply.  That is, when it had 0 replies would have shown up as -1 replies, and 1 actual reply would have shown up as if it had 0 replies. It may not be a big issue, but it is still a bug to go along with the long list of other bugs and issues with these new forums.

And now the topic (display error) in question seems to have fixed it self, at least for me. On another note...  Seriously, what is the rationale behind not letting people edit their posts before they get the rank of Journeyman?  The half hearted explanations some people have tried to excuse it with so far is not convincing me.  And anyway, it certainly is more than 2 weeks since I registered.  Even if it only counted the time after the new forums went live it still would have been more than 2 weeks. Anyway...  enough grumbling from me at the moment.

Hey all. The -1 post count issue is a known issue.  It is really just a timing thing.  If you post a new topic and you look at it, you will see the 0 right away, but the other servers will not have caught up with you yet.  The incremental post count number is just a bit slow at the moment.  We're going to get that resolved soon.  Luckily it is just a display issue.  <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> --voodoo-- SOE Platform QA
