Negative Link Count
I have a problem with some categories showing a negative number of links. I am almost certain this happens only when a link owner submits a listing to the wrong category. I then change the category before validating the link.

The original category then shows a -1 link in the link count (or more if this happened more than once). What's more, the category in which I moved those links into, presents an accessive number of links - in the same amount...

For instance look here:

http://www.meowhoo.com/...d_Showing/index.html

I've had 5 users submitting their link into Home : Breeders and Showing : Clubs and Associations : Persian

But as these were in fact breeders, when I reviewed their entries, I changed the category into: Home : Breeders and Showing : Breeders (by Breed) : Persian

Now if you look here: http://www.meowhoo.com/...ociations/index.html

you'll see that the number of listings under Persians shows -5 listings (when in fact there are zero listings)

If you look here:

http://www.meowhoo.com/...by_Breed_/index.html

You'll see that the number of listings under Persians shows 11 listings (when in fact there are only 8)

I did look it up on the forums and asked my server support team to repair the tables. They said they did but the problems persists :(
