I first inquired about this problem on Saturday the 19th of January. It seems the counter on Google Plus community pages has been stuck. At first I thought it was a glitch that would resolve itself, but it was persistent, more so than most errors so I started looking for some answers from people I thought may be better connected than I am.
Quite a few of the top community owners have been talking about this for the last couple of days. Today we heard back from one of the developers working on communities that they are working to resolve the issue.
Just found out that this problem only affects communities that have over 10,000 members.
Wishing you the very best in dogs and in life,
