Hey, everyone.

I just checked by double posting in the F1 thread and it seems that my post count has become stuck at 5,977. It doesn't really matter, but I thought I'd mention it (I was paying more attention than usual because of the 6,000th post short story I plan to post).

Well, you're at 5,978 now, so something counted. Perhaps it's the F1 forum which doesn't count towards counted posts? (I know Playrooms and the like don't count, but I'm not sure about the Sport ones.)

It took me a while to figure out the playrooms didn't count. I kept wondering why I had over 500 posts but less than 150 were being counted. I didn't really keep track of what threads were where. I would just check "New Posts" and jump into anything I liked the name of.

Ah, bonglenorks.

Ahem. Sorry. I did know some fora didn't count, but I thought it was just the Introductions and Current Events (or whatever it was called back when we had it).

I shall return to my isolated cavern on a remote North Sea island now.

When I make my own notes (which I usually remember to axe before sending to beta-readers) they're peppered with such terms. On posts: a mod can perhaps provide a definitive answer but I think some others have reported similar oddness. Doesn't affect anything, though.

Members can lose posts if they've replied to a thread which is moved from a forum where posts count (eg Writing Discussion) to one where they don't (eg the Lounge). Mostly this is where the thread is subsequently binned eg if the thread was started by a spammer or if the thread has got so embrungled by unpleasantness and acrimony that it's better off taken completely away.

And in theory that might happen if there's a hiccough back stage and a thread is binned for no apparent reason...

Not that that would ever happen, you understand. Oh no, never. Not possible. Not at all. *cough cough*

Normal service should now have been resumed!
