It's 0 because you're a new relay and haven't been measured yet.

All you need to do to stop being an exit is "ExitRelay 0" in your torrc.
What else did you disable?

Relays can include themselves in their MyFamily. It doesn't hurt and
doesn't cause issues.

Right now I only see 2 on jaffacakemonster2 and 1 on jaffacakemonster.
Seeing 3 would be weird, because in order for a pair of relays to be in
the same family, they must both list each other in their torrcs.

Thank you for running a relay. If you haven't read this blog post yet,
you may want to.
