View Full Version : Post Count???

01-20-2006, 06:45 PM
Just noticed my post count is WAY off!
I know I was between 150-180 (yes, I keep track because I LOVE getting those name changes! LOL) and now it's down in the 30s!

Any reason that might happen?

Did you recently change your username or something? I noticed you were registered in Jan 2006.

Mine changed too...I wonder if Laura deleted some threads. I think that if a thread is deleted, then so are the posts, and the posts counts go down. I lost like 200 posts.

01-20-2006, 06:59 PM
Hmm, I may have done something to cause this... I've been cleaning up the staff forums and updated the post counts. Where do you post the majority of your threads?

01-20-2006, 07:20 PM
mostly on layouts, I guess.

some in looking/answering for photoshop help.
the 2006 Challenge
anything that looks interesting, I usually respond.

(oh, and no name change - just found this site recently and am having lots of fun so I've been responding like crazy)

It's not a big deal - just wondering if I did something weird to suddenly plummet so much!

edited to add:
just noticed this - this is weird.
by post count was 31 when I noticed this.
I posted several comments since then.
Still at 31.

I'm so sorry you guys... it was me. After I moved a ton of threads I updated the post counts (because that was recommended) and THEN I find out it can't be changed. The funny thing is that I made sure that the moved threads were set so that they would still count toward the member's posts. Ugh. I applogize to everyone!

no problem!
you are one busy lady - - I guess we can forgive you this time!! LOL!

Holy crap! I've lost over 400 posts! How sad.... :( That's a lot of typing! :) Guess I'll have to hit the galleries hard to redeem myself!!

01-20-2006, 07:38 PM
Heh...isn't it funny how we actually watch our post counts??? :)

01-20-2006, 07:38 PM
i haven't watched my post count here too much but i used to watch very carefully at a different site

01-21-2006, 01:07 PM
You know, I haven't looked at my PCs!! Weird!! Now I wanna look, so I am posting - and to add one! LOL

I don't look at my post counts b/c I don't post much - takes away from my scrapping time!

Anyways, recently a BUNCH of LOs were removed/deleted when some challenge galleries were removed all of a sudden. Maybe a bunch of posts got lost there?

01-21-2006, 03:07 PM
Just checking to see what my count is.

01-21-2006, 04:47 PM
Boohoo, lost over 400 posts as well, but will get them back, oh yeah I will! I will be posting like madman :shocked: , LOL

01-21-2006, 05:11 PM
Man, I just can't figure out why people lost SO MANY posts, I didn't do THAT much maintenance. Again, I'm sorry girls! :angel_smi

01-21-2006, 08:41 PM
I don't think I lost any. I really don't keep that much track. Since I don't have that many posts.

01-21-2006, 09:51 PM
I wondered if it might have something to do with how many comments we make in the gallery. Since they don't show up in our "recent posts" but add to our post count, I thought maybe that was what it "updated"?!?!

It's OK, Laura, we still love you :)

01-21-2006, 10:49 PM
No worries, Laura *hugs*. Just a few lil old posts, everyone will just have to get to praising in the gallery :D!

01-22-2006, 03:10 AM
Thanks everyone for having such a great attitude about this!

01-24-2006, 04:57 AM
glad someone asked this - i've been wondering about it for a few days now- didn't think to post a querie myself though - d'uh

01-24-2006, 08:45 AM
gallery praise sounds like a great way to boost spirits and post counts!!! woohoo! off i go!

Noticed the same thing and thought Id ask the question - but heres all the info! Im back to a chickster but am happy to work it off again - there is some beautiful stuff in the gallery.

02-02-2006, 12:06 AM
I lost more than 200 posts too. But I'm just busting my a** @ the gallery to keep the count up. I think it's a good exercise to put in a good word for someone else's hard work.

Thanks for understanding everyone.
