Hide count discrepancy for future events

+1 vote
I've noticed that when I've organised a future event, there's a discrepancy in the count of my hides between the stats page and the stat bar. For example, my current stat bar shows 33 hides, whereas my stats page only shows 32. The difference is presumably an event I've just had published due to take place in October - the stats bar seems to include future event but the stats page doesn't. Is there any chance this could be resolved so that the pages are consistent? Thanks.

The stats page only shows the event in the past. An event can be canceled before the D-day so it's not count before the event itself.

In that case, why is it included on the stat bar?
I concur - I have the same problem - my statbar does not reflect my stats, the difference being a future event. It is a small problem, but I think the two should reflect the same information.
Optimist on the run: you should log this as a bug report.
The PGC stat bar matches the Geocaching stat bar - it is the stat page that is incorrect in that it doesn't include future events. Yes, in theory I could cancel an event beforehand - I don't know what would happen to the stat bars if I did, but in any case the pages should be consistent. I've changed this to a bug report.
