    I just wrote my first post in a good while and noticed my post count has gone way down. What happened?

    Not sure! How long ago was your last post?
    What do you expect the post count was?

    Well, it looks like one of my last posts was in February 2014. As to what my post count was, I think I probably had somewhere between 400-500 or thereabouts. Not really a big deal, just thought it was strange! IIRC, you had to have a minimum of 50 posts to acquire Resident Citizen status.

    May they have deleted some 'spam-Game-Threads'? :scratch

    ...just a thought... I'm not even a citizen, yet... :$

    Huh.. could have happened with the flipping back and forth with VB5 and VB4.
    I know some of the posts counts got 'adjusted' at that point when we were flipping.

    Does post count go down if the post/thread is deleted/archived?

    I think it's funny that Kelgan Sedai has just shy of 17,000 posts. :look

    Don't get me wrong. I truly understand a high post count. In that German WOT Community I am short under 13,000 :$ since 2006...

    But your post counts are high. ^^

    I believe a lot of my posts were on the old boards before we switched over, but I posted quite a bit up until 2013 or so. That was the year I went through some medical difficulties and had to undergo an intense physical rehab program, so that was the priority; that, and reading, which helped take my mind off of pain.
