When one of my favourite questions is updated, a little number appears in my profile as in: picture. What does this number refer to?

  • $\begingroup$ It means there has been activity in six of the questions you marked as favorite. $\endgroup$ – Arturo Magidin Mar 1 '12 at 19:49

    $\begingroup$ @ArturoMagidin: I don't think that can be right. I only have 11 favourites in the first place, and only two of them have had activity today. And the little number indicator wasn't showing when I looked earlier today. $\endgroup$ – Peter Phipps Mar 1 '12 at 20:09

    $\begingroup$ Should have been "six activites in the questions you marked as favorite". This one was edited; this had an answer, a delete, and edit, and several comments. $\endgroup$ – Arturo Magidin Mar 1 '12 at 20:21

According to an answer to this meta.SO question: What does highlighting mean on the profile's “Favorites” tab?

The number next to the tab indicates how many posts have new answers since you last visited the tab.

Arturo Magidin in his comment has a different explanation:

Should have been "six activites in the questions you marked as favorite". This one was edited; this had an answer, a delete, and edit, and several comments.

I do not know, which of the two answers is correct. But I am adding this as an answer so that it will bump the post and there is hope that someone who knows more about this will notice the question.
