I went to my user page this weekend and was surpised to see this:
I only have 11 questions favorited, so I thought that 34 seemed a bit high. Then I realized that I actually have no idea what that number means. I found an awesome answer by yoda to this question:
But, his observations ("The number next to the tab indicates how many posts have new answers since you last visited the tab") do not match up with what I'm seeing:
- I don't have 34 questions favorited, so I don't think it's a count of questions with new answers
- It doesn't seem to be a tally of all the new answers on my favorited questions either (because there are only 32 answers total to those 11 questions).
Could we get a clear definition of what this number means? This is obviously not a high-priority request, I'm just curious =)
I have left my favorites page the same for now, in case that is helpful to anyone doing detective work on this feature =)
