Design issue Following Count


Well-known member
i recently removed all the people i was following on my forum after i removed everyone from the list i noticed the button in the sidebar still indicated i am following 5 people.. there is no way to tell (that im aware of) who these members are but i suspect they are banned?

Im not sure if this is a bug or just unique to my installation however conformation one way or another would be great that and a fix of course. :)

I have previously reported this.
It is due to banned members.
The same thing happens with the Followers count.

We could spend time fixing this, but right now it reads from a cached value and altering that to do some sort of recalculation or live count would entail a significant performance hit, so for now I'm going to mark it as a design issue and leave it as-is.
