There is a defect with this site where on some threads it shows the number of replies as being the total number of posts and not the actual number of replies.
I create a new post, it has no replies, site shows 0 replies - correct
Now someone replies to my post, site shows 1 replies - correct
I reply back, site shows 2 replies - correct
Someone replies back, site shows 3 replies - correct
I reply back, site shows 4 replies - correct
However, I have found 2 posts where the site is showing 5 replies when in reality it is 5 posts (initial post + 4 replies).
The threads in question are
Java Forums -> This Site -> Ranch Office -> Bear Day (1 initial post + 4 replies, yet forum shows it as 5 replies)
Java Forums -> This Site -> Ranch Office -> Last post not showing? (1 initial post + 4 replies, yet forum shows it as 5 replies)

No. I don't think that there is a publicly available page (internal use only). Sorry.
However, thanks for reporting the defect nonetheless. Have a cow...

Well if I search this forum for all of the the terms "replies defect", I only get 2 results, 1 of which is this thread and another one not related. So searching it wouldn't really have helped - and I don't think anyone is going to sit here trying all the different permutations before they submit a defect (OK, I just tries "replies bug", and I did find the defect raised in 2010 - but, that one only got matched because six posts down someone mentioned "bug" - the OP didn't mention it, and so if that person had just written "we're aware of this", instead of adding bug, then that wouldn't have been matched either).
I am assuming there are only around a few defects at most reported per month, so I just think it would be a better idea if there was a specific section at this forum where you could raise defects - in that way, anyone who has found a defect could quickly browse that list in a few minutes to determine whether or not the defect they want to raise has already been raised.
