Hi this count is for ideas posted on the old ideas board within the community. The new ideas (Labs) platform is completely separate therfor the count does not include those ideas.
The sensible thing for giffgaff to do is to disable the counter as it isn't going to be correct anymore.
Probably, yes, that's the best solution Si 🙂
Be nice if giffgaff just completely took it off if it's pointless rather than leaving it to members to do it.
I know it is only a small thing but there are loads of 'only small things' on the site.
Things like not having Labs as a direct link with the rest of the forums (causing confusion and people not knowing how to post an idea because it is the only thing without a direct link), banners showing the old SIM on the picture, or this with the 'ideas posted' count.
It would be nice if someone at gg gave things a bit deeper thinking for when something is changed and think about which other parts of the site changes affect.....
