    I have been noticing lately. that my no. of posts is not increasing as fast as i am posting.

    yesterday when i logged in i had 138 posts. i made around 6-7 posts yesterday, and also a couple of them today but it still reads 138.

    is this site having some trouble or are the admin. trying to discourage me from posting, as a part of some evil plan of theirs. :confused:

    Your posts were all in General Discussion, and posts in GD aren't counted.

    Nope,i've had 132 posts in one thread in GD only (you can guess which)...But they didn't add to my tally.

    That's the policy.Posts get counted,but not added to individual tally.

    Daniel.

    P.S.Is the # of posts (or should it be) relevant...?A reason to be proud,or what...?

    There's that big, bold-lettered Announcement at the top of GD that explains this.

    Is it relevant? I don't really think so. Quality over quantity is much prefered, in my opinion. But, that's really why they don't count in GD, because we're not so picky about quality here, just letting off steam.

    You know, if you're going to purposely misquote me, you should at least do it properly. :rofl:

    Hahaha, or should I say harraharharrr. I was actually thinking of posting something that was true spam, and saying this is spam, but I decided not to. However, this post I am about to post right now is, essentially, spam.

    Posts made in GD don't count???? :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

    But neo-phytes can't be bothered to read such things.

    Really now, is it just me, or ahs there been a major surge in these sorts of questions?

    Namely stupid ones posted by people too lazy to spend two minutes looking (or declaring a thread we referred them too, which was 3 pages long, and covered everything they asked for in detail) was too long to read, so we should go through it all again, just for them.

    Are these people like rabbits or is it jsut me?
