    Posts made in the Member Awards sub forum are increasing my post count. Is this intended? I thought posts made in the Lounge area weren't supposed to count towards one's total.

    Greg probably didn't disable post count. Unless you plan to spam the Awards, just accept them. :tongue: I believe that when the comments get deleted after the awards, they'll disappear.

    <sticks a GOOBF card into Dembadon's computer for being honest> I hadn't even noticed.

    What do you think of making awards restricted to people who have not won them before?

    I'm necro'ing my old post because I believe my new issue is sufficiently similar.

    On August 23rd (+/- two days), my post count was 559. Now it is 566, and I have no idea how this happened. I don't believe I've made enough posts in forums that increase one's post count to make this possible.

    Sometimes threads get moved, if you posted in a thread in GD which was moved to a forum where posts count, your post count would increase. Reported posts also count.

    Doh, can't believe I didn't think of that. :redface:

    Edit:

    Posts I report, or posts I've made that are reported by others?
