The Number Of Followers...

Try opening the image in a new tab to view it properly.

I just discovered something. No matter how many followers you have, you can't see more than \(100\) of them in the followers page under your profile. Is this a bug? Or is this the intended behavior? This means if you have more than a hundred followers, some of them will not be displayed on the page. How is this determined?

The image above is a screenshot of my "followers" page and search bar is showing that the term "followers" appears \(102\) times on the page. If we discount the ones on top and the left of the page, we're left with \(100\) followers when clearly I have more.

So, is this a bug?

Thank you.

PS: I've tried this with other users' profiles as well. Even if this is the intended behavior, it seems a bit odd to me.

Mursalin -- nothing escapes your eyes! We only show 100 profiles for now. That is a shortcut that we took in order to keep the page fast. Someday in the (near) future, we will add a "load more" feature. Silas Hundt Staff · 2 years, 12 months ago

Was that a compliment? :)

That is really considerate.

@Silas Hundt Heaven knows that if someone were trying to load my "Following" page, that it would surely crash their computer. :) Finn Hulse · 2 years, 12 months ago

@Finn Hulse You should think about what would happen if someone wanted to see the followers page of the best of algebra! Mursalin Habib · 2 years, 12 months ago

who will solve this: In the series of odd numbers 1+ 3 + 5 – 7 – 9 – 11+13 +15 +17 – 19 – 21– 23 ... the signs alternate every three terms, as shown. What is the sum of the first 360 terms of the series? Sälmän Rähmän · 2 years, 12 months ago

@Finn Hulse how did you solve that? Sälmän Rähmän · 2 years, 12 months ago

@Sälmän Rähmän Make groups of 6 consecutive terms! So there will be \(\frac{360}{6}=60\) groups! And some of each group will be \(-18\)...

So sum\(=60×-18=-1080 \) Pranjal Jain · 1 year, 12 months ago
