I can look at your category thing again if you like but as I posted that corrected itself when I uploaded correct files. As far as the stats they can only be updated two ways and two ways only in the code. One when a user marks his ad as sold and two if you run sendnotice and an auction is closed and the amounts are added. Stats can not rise any other way. I would definately suggest you check you have not had any sold or closed auctions done. If your having a problem with the cron script maybe there is an issue with how your cron is setup on the server that prevents it from fully operating but otherwise I dont see anyway the stats can not update correct.
