Default post count...?

Im not too concerned about this... lol But was just wondering why My post count keeps going down? One day I noticed I posted like 5 posts. The next day My post count only went up 2. Example: So I started at 140 it went up to 145 (and showed it on my profile), the next day it was back down to 142. Its not like I was just posting in the midwest or wherever (I know that only some places posts count). But my point is that how can my post count drop the next day? Like I said before, Im not too concerned but I was just kindof curious about how this works.

Oh and BTW, Go Cubs!

It depends on which section you posted in. Only certain areas add to your post count.

And if a thread gets deleted, you lose those posts.

no, you guys dont understand. The posts already registered, it said Posts: 145 and said it all nite. Then the next day I checked it, Posts: 142. And Now I have 149 posts and a couple days ago I had 151. I know that some sections dont register posts. And I havent had any posts deleted either. so....

btw... Boooo them Cardinals! Go Cubs!

If a person deletes their thread, and you posted in it, then you lose those posts. Period. Gone. Happens all the time.

We have better things to do than go around and mess with peoples' post counts.

Its a conspiracy. The mod's take the posts from us like its money, they figure if they steal one from each member a day they can make theirs go up drastically. All the while, we barely notice because its only 1 or so missing.

Don't worry I'm onto them. How else would Tony have tens of thousands of posts?

Some say it's a myth, others say it's a legend or tall tale, but I've heard about the post monster that roams forums just to steals posts from unsuspecting members like yourself.

Beware, some of these posts are never seen again...

Many don't notice because of the small amount of posts that are taken, but it happens. Good on you for your vigilance and attention to detail.

I bought the post lock security system. It protects my posts from thievery and fraud. Now I can sleep easy at night again. It is only 29.99$ a month. I bought it from Vendetta, he takes most major cards. Check and see if he has any left.
