    So, by the side of people's posts you get their avatar, their post count, their rep gems, their amount of badges and their followers. Except, on my posts you can't see the tally of the ones I've made. It also shows me as having 0 followers, when in fact I've got one - or at least, I've received a notification for having got one.

    Some other people's post numbers are hidden, I can't speak for mystery followers though. Any idea why this is?

    Post numbers can be hidden in your settings somewhere. I think this is opt out, so you've changed it yourself in the past.

    As for followers, someone can accidentally follow you and decide to unfollow you. I've done this in the past but I don't care anymore, the person can feel popular/creeped out. I've followed you to get you back to 1 follower.

    You can check your followers here: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/follow.php If you're seeing no-one there, perhaps the person who followed you subsequently unfollowed you?

    As for hiding your post count, that's here: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/pro...do=editoptions (under "Thread Display Options").
