A question I asked has only three answers, but my Stack Exchange inbox shows 6 answers on What if the answers of a historical locked question become obsolete?:

    You probably have 6 answers. You just can't see some deleted ones (and neither can I) because we don't have 10k reputation. Nov 20, 2012 at 17:05

    @Ben: there are no deleted answers on that question (at least none that 10k users can see).

  • Could it be that comments and answers are lumped together in that counter? Nov 20, 2012 at 18:42
  • @DanielFischer If that is true then I'd call this a display bug in the notification test then.

  • @DanielFischer - unlikely. I just had the same bug in SFF.SE and had TWO separate notifications; one of comments; one for (incorrectly counted) answers.
