I know TSS has a lot of hint topics, but I don't think 1776 is an accurate count, considering there are only ~530 puzzle rooms.

Not inaccurate, just misnamed. It's counting posts, not threads.

EDIT: On further investigation, however, it *is* counting threads only for older holds. So yes, there's a problem here, since it seems to be using a different metric now, but is still holding old data.

It's using the same metric, but the metric is broken because I changed it so that each *post* is associated with a room (i.e. the topic links to the room image). Will fix it to only count first posts in threads.

Edit: And fixed.
