I asked a question on Arqade, which was put on hold pending meta discussion. The community decided overwhelmingly to reopen the question, but it does not appear to be included in the question count on my SE network profile. It is my only question on Arqade, but the "Accounts" tab for my profile reads "0" questions. Shouldn't it count if it's reopened?

    Can we see the link? – Anthony Pham Jun 22 '15 at 16:00

    It reads as "1" question for me. I can't repro this. CACHING! – M.A.R. Jun 22 '15 at 16:04
  • @PythonMaster Question link is in the question, and here's the profile link: stackexchange.com/users/225392/sss4r?tab=accounts – sss4r Jun 22 '15 at 16:07
  • FWIW, I cleared my local cache, made no difference, of course. Where is this caching taking place? On the SE servers? Interesting that we can see different results on the same page, I didn't realize that was a thing. – sss4r Jun 22 '15 at 16:09

    The SE servers. Took them 3 months to get my rep right in Area 51... :( – Anthony Pham Jun 22 '15 at 16:09
  • BTW, I haven't a clue which of the two answers should be accepted--they say the same thing basically. I suppose I could accept the one that was posted first? I think that was @nicael – sss4r Jun 22 '15 at 16:14
  • Never mind, if I read it correctly, the answer is caching, and @PythonMaster went there first. Thanks to you both, I'm just trying to be fair. – sss4r Jun 22 '15 at 16:17

Seemingly, caching is taking a long time to catch up with the present. You should check that later and see whether it has updated or not. I know how long it could take since that happened to me... Took 3 months to finish caching. Just be patient and it should be there soon.

Oh, questions will always show up on your account if it is not deleted. If it is closed, put on hold, or open it should still be there.


The fact that it's closed or not, locked/ not locked, etc doesn't count. The questions do count, unless deleted. Your question should have been shown even if it stayed closed.

So, you've just found a bug (wait 6 to 8 weeks though, maybe you should blame caching) :)

    Are you kidding me? Maybe we should blame caching?! – M.A.R. Jun 22 '15 at 16:05
  • @M.A.Ramezani lol :D – nicael Jun 22 '15 at 16:06
  • Hey, that was my idea!! The one about caching – Anthony Pham Jun 22 '15 at 16:08
  • @Python Yeah, I added about caching :) Cheating, you mean? But you added the paragraph similar to my first one :D – nicael Jun 22 '15 at 16:12
  • I guess we are even then – Anthony Pham Jun 22 '15 at 16:12
