Adopted caches don't transfer into statistics

Recommended Posts

A friend of mine recently have run into a weird bug regarding one account:



If you look into the profile you can see that this account has six Letterboxes in possession, but the main profile stats (next to the username) show 0 hides.
If we take a closer look, we will see that not only the hide count, but also the favorites count is incorrect (screen on the right).




My guess is that it has something to do with the process of cache adoption, all six of these were adopted after ca. 1 year from being published.

I thought the problem may be that "nckultury" account had no own caches before the process of adoption, but I know a different player who started the exact same way, by adopting some old caches, and all stats were shown correctly for him from the beginning. Maybe it has something to do with the trackables count being replaced with favorite points at some point, but this is just a guess.

Sometimes with adoption  cache ownership for the new owner doesn't show up until the cache is found again, but that's not the case here.   Odd


He ought to do some maintenance on these, several seem to be be bad shape.

The adoption process, which is some very old code on the site, doesn't trigger the system to update a user's hides. The number should correct the next time the user has a new cache published under their account.
