What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 139 Stack Exchange communities.

In the user profile, questions on which the user has posted more than one answer are grouped into one.

This leads to a wrong answer count: I, for example, don't currently have 169 answers on Meta; instead there are 169 questions I have answered.

Possible duplicate of meta.stackexchange.com/questions/40953/… –  jmfsg Apr 5 '10 at 19:53
You can see on that link, that this is [status-bydesign] –  jmfsg Apr 5 '10 at 19:54
@Downvoter: How is that question even remotely a dupe? –  balpha Apr 5 '10 at 20:01
Because it's the same question? –  jmfsg Apr 5 '10 at 20:04
(it's a particular case of what you're saying, read the accepted answer) –  jmfsg Apr 5 '10 at 20:04
@Downvoter: Is it possible you mistyped the number? I'm not ruling out that I've posted a dupe, but the question you linked to has nothing to do with mine -- mine is about the Answer count, yours is about the number of votes on the particular answers. –  balpha Apr 5 '10 at 20:06
well, I see it's kinda a dupe, actually, I meant to say the answer is addressing the issue, and it's mark as bydesign. So it would be a duplicate of the answer, so you're right. I'd unvote to close. –  jmfsg Apr 5 '10 at 20:09
@Downvoter: The folding of several answers into one link is by-design -- I understand that. But the number above the list (169 in my example) is not COUNT(*) FROM Answers WHERE Owner=Me, as the wording suggests, but instead it's COUNT(*) FROM Question WHERE AnsweredByMe -- which is a different number as soon as I have several answers on the same question. –  balpha Apr 5 '10 at 20:16
you are right, I misread –  jmfsg Apr 5 '10 at 20:18

This will be fixed in the next build, showing the actual total answers, rather than the number of questions answered.

Previously this total was the row total...but since answers are rolled-up before that happens, this was incorrect.

I think this change might have introduced a small bug in pagination, could you check meta.stackexchange.com/questions/91258/… ? –  Marijn May 15 '11 at 7:33
