What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

When you browse a question on Stack Overflow, you have a whole bunch of related questions on the right.

For some reason, they are WAY WAY out of date (so for example clicking on one that says it has 0 answers, takes me to the question, which has been answered several times, voted up, and been marked as answered).

Any ideas why?

Example: This link says 0 answers:

List of related questions

yet it's been answered and marked as that when you open it.

Answer on a specific question

Shame I closed the one with multiple answers and upvotes ...

Can you show an example? – Oded Nov 2 '13 at 7:58
Where did you take that screenshot? You only provided where the highlighted link leads to, so I cannot verify the other links. – Martijn Pieters Nov 2 '13 at 8:25
Was it this question? – Martijn Pieters Nov 2 '13 at 8:31
@MartijnPieters yep, that was the question. – Noctis Nov 2 '13 at 8:46

You are reading those numbers wrong, I am afraid. Those numbers are not answer counts. If you mouse over the number, the tool tip says:

Vote score tooltip

And indeed, the question you linked to has score 0.

I verified all the other scores on the post in question and all the question scores are up-to-date.

Gosh I feel silly ... I never hoovered above the numbered, Just assumed they are answers for some reason ... You're right, those numbers are the upvotes on the Question, nothing to do with the answers – Noctis Nov 2 '13 at 8:47
