View Full Version : Post Counts

Check your post counts. Some of our post counts may have dropped.
If yours did and you want them back post in the help forum.
Don't make a new post, add to the one that's already in there.

I always lose posts when this happens and I never notice.
Someone always has to tell me.

*looks at post count*

Lets see, I think I had around 1763.

:D :p

What happens when everyone's count drops?

the admin panel has a nifty little button called "update userīs post counts". if someone pushes it it recount all posts a user (users) has made. for those who signed up after LF merged as one forum, there is no problem. but for those who were at the forums before the merge it has a slight problem. all posts in those seperate forums arent counted when that button is pressed. so when you for example had 2000 posts in those old forums and the update post count button is pressed, those 2000 posts arent counted which resolves in a loss of 2000 in your post count.

hope this helps ;)

*walks off into the sunset and kicks a rock* :D

What is the point of the pushing the button then?

It's good for pruning posts.
