    I have 3 followers but only 2 icons are displayed.

    I follow 3 people - and there 3 icons are displayed as expected.

    Are there invisible followers? Or what does the forum count as followers that does not have an avatar/icon?

    Wish I had a good answer for you. I also found the site saying you have three followers but only 2 show up when I checked on it. I could not find a third follower? :hmm:

    Dug into the forum code a bit and it said that if a bot follows you, it has a null value? Cannot confirm that happened, but will keep checking.

    Maybe it's a banned/permabanned member?
    (which might be a bot)

    Since I did just some cleaning, I'd like to confirm: Permabanned users (in this case bots) do not show up in your followers list, but the number displayed as followers does not decrease.
