Whenever I go on my computer to analyze how many debates are in the challenge period, it will sometimes give me a different number than it really represents. For example, right now it shows that there are 5 challenges, but that I can only choose to accept 1. Why is this? Is it a glitch on my computer or what?

It is a glitch. It never happened to me until I came back about a week ago.

Yeah maybe everyone's blocking you. That would be a reasonable explanation.

Well that would mean that people are blocking you an 000ike then becuase both of you reported having similar issues.

It does this to me too. I never thought about why but it would make sense if it shows the number of pending challenges, but only lets you see the ones you can accept. I have a pending challenge right now, but its to a specific user so no one else will see it there.

??? How did you conclude this, Joseph? Perhaps you forgot what similar meant (too much occupation on the 'I am a white supremacist!!! I BELIEVE BLACKS SHOULD BE IN GHETTOES AND WHITES SHOULD BE DRINKING TEA!!!!"

That is the case. Any challenges that are to a specific member (so not open challenges) will be counted, but you can only see the open ones when you click on it.

Oddly, mine will sometimes show a lower number. Right now it says there are 2 debates, but I can click on 4.

But some of them you cannot accept, right? Not meeting the criteria.

No. I can accept them all. In fact, I have only come across two in my whole DDO career that I couldn't accept
