Number of posts stays the same?

Whys is that my number of posts stays at "2,468" even as I continue to have new posts? Not that I care but just curious, since others have much more posts shown.

Works for me.

Note that some forums do not add posts (ie. Foo)

You are hallucinating. The screen snip shows you are at 2469

LOUNGE POSTS DON'T COUNT. Foo, P&R, Titanium Club, all are in the lounge.

Aha, I see. Must be the P&R posts that didn't count. (I thought 2,468 was a magic number )

Yeah, none of the posts in The Lounge section- Foo, P & R, TH, the rest- go towards the post count.

It was explained somewhere around here that posts in some forums such as Foo, Politics and Religion and other Off-Topic forums do not count in overall post count.

With the last example of @roomenrider, you may not have enough privileges in certain areas as well at only 5 'regular' posts. Once you have contributed 5 more posts in other forums (that do count for post totals) then you will also gain privileges accorded to those with 10 regular posts or more.

So remember that if your hangout of choice is P&R...nobody gets any credit there

Apparently the best meaningless babbling or people wouldn't be finding a five year old thread to ask (so hey, the search works)!
