That's what happens when the database pulls a 0 review. I'm not sure what causes it, but it only comes up extremely infrequently so it's not necessarily a priority fix. It may not even be a possible fix, since I'm half convinced that it's just the result of a query not pulling the expected variable. I could code in a workaround for when that happens--and maybe I will someday--but right now my coding mostly goes to HGWars.

In all the time that box has been there, it's the first time I've seen it. Not by any means a huge issue - it just amused me.

I've seen it loads of times! Never thought much of it, though.
