    What happened to my post count?
    Did I earn some demerits or something? Not too long ago my post count was over 6,000. Now it's around 5,700. This is very mysterious.

    Okay, very funny, who's the wise guy?

    Maybe the "cancel" thread was cancelled?

    Maybe so, but I never posted that much in the cancel thread.

    It's not that I want them back, I can always get more. I'm just curious as to why this happened. Maybe somebody stole them off me when the lights went out this morning.

    I'll have to look into it. I rebuilt the post counts recently, which should have made them more accurate. Many people had their post counts manually bumped up to give them PM and Signature access, and that's not necessary any more. If I look at your posts, I see 6059, so the count in your profile isn't right. Some forums might be set up not to count. I'll get to the bottom of it.

    Ah! Found it. The posts in Daily Chuckle weren't set up to count. I think they should, so I'll change it.

    The reason that forum wasn't set up to count was because newbies were flooding it with jokes in order to get PM privileges quickly.

    Yeah, I remembered that when I was looking for the problem.

    I don't think that'll be a problem going forward. We're watching pretty closely to make sure new members are really participating and not just posting in the off-topic forums, saying "Thanks for the post" or practicing their English, and taking action if they're not adding to the experience we call ABW.
