Is there a way to run or update all Public Lists so current count is right without having to open each one?
If you have the my list module installed on the top content (by your initials) and you have subscribed to the list, you can trigger a count update there.
f you tracked how the system update the count there, you might be able to make a process that runs the update against lists on a schedule.
I will look at that. I don't have it installed. I have about 100 lists I want to know the current status for so don't want to subscribe to all of those. That process, if made, would be quite helpful.
