Seems like only admins and global moderators can change post owners right now.
So if so, you might be able to choose these settings on the permissions screen?
Or even if the button does not show to anyone who does not have this permission.
Every once in a while I take a look at "users" to see who's new. The other day I noted a disconnect between the number of posts reported by user top posters and the profile views. For e.g., here is me on users page:
And here's my total posts as reported by my profile page:
WTF? Now they agree. Just moments ago my profile page reported something like 483?
Ah, Geronimo, here ya' go:
The difference 'twixt the last two screenshots is that the first I am logged in whilst on the second I am not. Heh, maybe this is a feature to confound the bots? (I joke) Or maybe my uBlock is blocking one of the increasingly many third party scripts?
Well, lets' find out. Be right back.
Nope. I get same result with all of my browser plugins disabled. This is on FF v95.02, 64bit, fwiw.
Perhaps it's a permission issues. Logged out they are not counted. Only what is publicly viewable is counted and displayed.
So you have a secret life eh!
Well, this seems to have slipped through the cracks. Trivial as it is consequences wise. I would, however, appreciate some confirmation that I am not high on crack so it remains a curiosity to me.
How to repeat:
What do you observe, eh?
fwiw; I have tested on FF, sans any plugins/add-ons, both under Unix and Winwoes 10 and the result is the same. Hmm... there's probably an "Edge" browser on that lappie so I ought to test that as well. Yeah, same results w/Edge.
It is different because guests don't have access to the private categories that you posted in.
@baris Ugh, duh! And coincidentally all the other users I checked were in the same boat. Thanks for the clue bat.
