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.

On CSTheory, in the old user page rendering, we had 106 pages of users, 35 to a page. In the new user page rendering, we appear to have 58 pages of users, 36 to a page. We appear to have lost nearly half our users!

Somewhat related - (User count mismatch) meta.stackexchange.com/q/81260/156011. The page stackexchange.com/leagues/44/week/cstheory shows a user count of 3932, closer to your 106 x 35 claim than the current 58 x 36 – RichardTheKiwi Mar 2 '11 at 0:26
I can't give proof because I can't access the old page. but your data seems right. – Suresh Mar 2 '11 at 4:57

The page count should now be stable and complete.

For a day there we were (hackishly) excluding users with 101 rep that were associated, they had done nothing but associate (in 99% of cases). We're still working on /users, today we made this much better. We're not filtering both association bonuses and suspension reputation changes out of the /users rep intervals.

The new users page doesn't cover unregistered users anymore.

Actually, the users page never reliably covered unregistered users. – Grace Note Mar 2 '11 at 14:14
@Grace: on Stackoverflow, displaying unregistered users was turned off around summer of 2010 and, I thought, with the reason to save paging performance. – BalusC Mar 2 '11 at 14:16
The change predated the launch of Stack Exchange 2.0, so I had always operated under the assumption that they just kept that functionality. Hah, there's no way for me to check anymore, though. – Grace Note Mar 2 '11 at 14:20
