Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

My Stack Exchange profile page is showing a question marked as favorite, when I actually only downvoted the question. In the question itself, you can see that it has been not been marked as a favorite by anyone.

Generate random number every x seconds and display it

This entry, however, does not show up in my Stack Overflow profile page.


I don't know if any of the mods/admins took care of it, but the entry is gone now. The last thing I tried was Caled's comment of adding and removing the question from favorite (with a few seconds pause in between).

Even better, according to your screenshot and profile there are 0 users who've favourited that question :-). – ben is uǝq backwards Mar 29 '13 at 9:55
Did you favorite then unfavorite it? Perhaps this is a caching issue? – Caleb Mar 29 '13 at 9:56
@Caleb I don't recall ever favoriting the question (maybe possibly by mistake when trying to downvote). I just tried to favorite/unfavorite, however, it still shows in my SE profile. How long does it take for the SE profile to update? – Jesse Mar 29 '13 at 9:58
