    I continue to subscribe to the theory that ever since sometime earlier this year when we had the great debate about games in Foo, posts in Foo have stopped counting toward one's total post count. (Older posts got grandfathered in, though.) How many of your posts are in Foo?

    Take Mrs. Stormcrowe's post statistics:

    official post count: 7 (in her profile)
    total posts: 17 (when viewing all her posts)
    posts in Foo: 10 (when searching for posts made by her in Foo)

    11,801 and counting... oh god if they ever pull my internet history from work I'm f**ked... that's the beauty of having a butt slow old computer at work. I keep my admin rights and it takes so long to do a task in CAD that I can make 2-3 posts on bikeforums between them.

    If you add up some of my post counts from the big threads in foo, it adds up to more than my profile post count total.

    I'm not one to complain, but I find it hard to believe there is a good reason for this.

    Its pretty common practice. Most forums I have been on have a "fooish" forum...and posts never count.

    Most definitely
    If i could have had a voice in that opinion i'd have said they count
    Life is about hanging onto what you think is important and finding out what really is important.
    "Stop Ruining my joke!", "No, a joke implies humor attached at no additional cost"
    So many sayings, so little sig space.
