Negative symbol next to discussion count

I moved some discussions to a different category and it added a "-" to the count

Is there a way to change this and turn it off? Only started doing that after I upgraded to 2.5

    Also notice that in categories where there are posts it says 0

    The idea behind this is that counting higher numbers takes much time and therefore it normally isn't done quite often. If you are only moving a single discussion which is one of lets say 1.3k in a category, this is nothing which can be noticed.

    If you are starting a forum it shows every time :(

    But if you have only a few discussions I would say it is better for building a community if you have less categories. Trust on tags if you think you need something to group them.

    In the category, its saying the thread below the most recent is the recent (if that makes sense)

    That is what you see looking at categories

    But when you click the category this is what you see...

    Is it because the recent discussion doesnt have comments yet?

    Don't know, maybe. If someone likes to answer it, you would have to look at CategoryModel->counts(). Maybe that could be a fine start for a PullRequest?

    To fix this you could
    1. do a test comment
    2. check the categories view
    3. run dba/counts if needed
    4. delete the test comment

    But I really don't know if that is worth the trouble. If I were you I would switch to the Recent Discussions view as the home page as long as you have only a few discussions.
