I have looked at the bug report link. I think we have the same problem. We used Quick Submit to upload old issues in 2013. They are listed as being published in the correct years (because we set this before publishing the issues). However they are all listed as being submitted, etc, in 2013. In other words, when clicking on Statistics under About, users see "Issues Published: 1" and everything else 0 for years before 2013, while for 2013 they see "issues published: 0" and other things nonzero that should be zero.
I would like to start from scratch in 2013, and reset everything to zero (I am not worried about previous years, because we don't have correct statistics on reviewing time, etc). Do we need to manipulate the database directly, or is there another way? If we do, which items are we looking for?
