No, it has nothing to do with any "incompatibilities".
Here's how it happened.
On the old forum, when we delete one of your posts either indivdually, by a whole thread, or by a whole forum, UBB never decremented your post counter. In fact, there's no way AT ALL to re-count your posts in case the counter ever goofed. Remember SA? Remember FSC? Those forums were deleted altogether along with your posts, but the post counts were never decremented to reflect that change.
When we imported to vB, the software set your post count to the CORRECT value. In fact, vB does properly decrement post counts wen things are deleted and also has an option in the administrative control panel to re-count members' post numbers. This is a good thing!
