12 members but "no members yet"????


While looking for new and unique boards I stumbled upon this message board that is showing really weird board statistics. On one line it says there are 12 members but then right below that it says "no members yet." That has to be a bug right?

Could it be a CSS trick? <shrugs>

It's not a CSS trick, otherwise the "real" stats would be showing when you view the source code.

This appears to be the result of some weird security settings. None of their forums are private, but some have their own member lists. I do consider it a bug, but I also don't think it would happen if their settings made sense.

June 4 edit: Although their security settings are weird, that isn't what caused this. Since the board's newest member has himself/herself set to be "invisible" in the member list, it was showing "No members yet" as the newest member. This doesn't affect the overall stats, but I do think it should display a different message when the newest member is invisible.

Aha! So as Thor fixes the bug can he fix the forum security settings so that they don't mess with the boards stats?

I hope so. It would also be good to get rid of the possible catch-22 of requiring membership to post, but requiring one post to gain membership.

Re:


This probably isn't the issue, but I've noticed that when premium users who have their name invisible in the members list join a board, the board stats will say No members.

Actually that is what happened, just looked lol. Same thing happened on a skin board I'm working on.

You rock, Josh! Now that the mystery is solved, I'm sure it will be easy for Thor to fix.
