Different from the problem reported over two weeks ago https://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/discussion/6182776

The main forum display for Competitions time shows:

note that it claims that the "Regular Competitions" sub-forum has just One Thread
The Regular Competitions sub-forum actually has eight threads:


The Vanilla Forum is 7 months old today - and we still can not trust it.

    It's worse today - showing as Zero threads in "Regular Competitions" - there are actually 7 threads in that sub-forum.

    Todays display showing additional problems
    1) Zero threads in "Regular Competitions" - there are actually 7 threads in that sub-forum.
    2 & 3) The most recent threads showing are actually in "Competitions Time" and not in the sub-forums indicated.

    Today's display
    1) How the heck can there be negative threads in a forum?
    2, 3, 4, 5) These threads are actually in "Competitions Time" and not in the sub-forums indicated.

    It is somewhat better today - I don't know if this is coincidence or if something has been done about the fault.
    1) The threads shown in column 1 are all in the sub-forums against which they appear.
    2) The thread count has now reached "-17" (seems to be decreasing by one each day approx)

    This is possibly solved. There has been no communication about a solution being implemented so it could be temporary or coincidental.
    1) The threads shown in column 1 are all in the sub-forums against which they appear.
    2) The thread count of 10 is correct at the moment.
