My guess is that the other 15 are notifications of when I have been quoted (or something other than likes) because the count is up to 18 now that you guys have quoted me in your answers. I did try Bob's suggestion to scroll down through the other pages of likes and then come back to my user profile and statistics. Didn't help...
It was suggested that I check my Internet Explorer settings. Other than the "compatibility mode" what other settings play into possible issues with this forum?
I really appreciate all the help, guys. These problems are annoying, but they will not keep me from using the forum! The most frustrating thing is that it all used to work - and now this. Of course I am willing to except that it is all Bill Gates' fault.
