Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

When you mouseover your username, there's the personal statistics like reputation, votes, revisions, and favorites.

What does favorites reflect?? It doesn't seem like it is the question favorites that I favorite. What does that number mean?

And how many people just favorited and un-favorited this post just to test it? – Kevin Jan 6 '12 at 1:32
@hammar Genius!! I see it's the activity on posts you've favorited. Please post that as the answer and I'll accept. :) – Thomas Stringer Jan 6 '12 at 1:40
