This issue has been resolved.
Descriptive Problem Summary: When a guest logs into a game, if only guests are logged into a game, the players list is completely blank. If guests and keys are logged in, the player count still contains guests and keys, but the player list only contains keys.

Numbered Steps to Reproduce Problem:
1) Log into a game without players.
2) Notice the player count is 1, but when you click "show list" nothing shows.

Photobucket

Expected Results: For guest keys to be displayed on the player list(not individually, but such as "x guests", or something to that nature.)

Actual Results: Guest keys are completely omited from the players list.

Does the problem occur:
Every time? Or how often? Everytime.
In other games? Yes.
In other user accounts? Untested.
On other computers? Yes.

When does the problem NOT occur? When using a BYOND key.

Workarounds: Use a BYOND key.

Why would we want to display guest accounts (They don't even have a page).
Usually it shows # private as plain text for the guests
It just should show "[...] and X guests". With that it's fine.
I'm closing this as a non-bug because basically private = guest as far as the hub and website are concerned.
Just to clarify, I agree with the functionality as guests being reported as private, but this bug report was reporting cases where nothing appears in the players list (as shown in the screen-shot in the original report, where it reports 1 player being logged in, but nothing is displayed in the expanded players list(notice [Hide list])).

If this was intended, it seems somewhat buggy to me.

Ah, I see what you mean then. I was unclear on the problem.
