I couldn't figure out why I wasn't counted as following my own proposal, turns out I hadn't confirmed my email address. (It had been sent to my work email by mistake)

Surely it's not a good idea to let people propose sites without confirming their email?

Also, "following" your own proposal is a bit strange, but it does get around the lonely looking '0' followers when you start something, so I like it.

Re the E-Mail confirmation: Why not? It stands to reason the proposal counts, not the proposer. – Pëkka Aug 9 '10 at 22:01

We actually already implemented this (or so I thought). It turns out we had a bug whereby a user with >= 50 rep with an unconfirmed email address could still create a proposal. This is fixed now.

with bug you mean your if(user.eMailConfirmed) was actually if(user.rep >= 50) ? :P – Tobias Kienzler Aug 10 '10 at 7:44
