My S.O profile shows 232 answers, while the network profile shows 231 answers.

S.O: stackoverflow.com/users/<id>/<username>?tab=summary

When searching with is:answer wiki:0 in S.O I get 231 results, and without wiki:0 232, meaning I have 1 wiki answer, and 231 non-wiki answers. So I'm guessing only non-wiki posts count towards the total displayed in a network profile.

So does the network profile post count list omit community wiki posts?


After checking another user's profile, I don't think only wiki posts are missing, there could be something else:

Search: http://stackoverflow.com/search?q=user%3A50079+is%3Aanswer+wiki%3A0&submit=search

(3590 non-wiki answers 3594 total answers 3591 network profile answers).

From the above images it is clear that the count does not depend only on if a post is wiki or not. There is something else going on here.

Why is this mismatch occurring?

    I feel like you answered this yourself. Or am I missing something? – username tbd Nov 29 '12 at 3:31
  • @usernametbd speculation is not an answer. there are other possibilities... – Jeff Nov 29 '12 at 3:39
  • @usernametbd i think WE are missing something here, i checked another user's profile, and there things were much different. will update question in a bit, with the new findings. – bool.dev Nov 29 '12 at 4:23
  • FYI i just checked my own profile and noticed the same behavior, so i think your intuition was correct. i would tag this as a bug--not sure why this behavior would be by design – Jeff Nov 29 '12 at 4:34

    @jeff i was thinking of tagging this as bug in the beginning, but wasn't very sure then, see the new update, wiki is not the only factor here. – bool.dev Nov 29 '12 at 5:15
