Regarding post count

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Something seems to be wrong with how this server counts member posts. This is my third post in these forums and yet if you look at my info it says five posts. Go ahead and search the forums for Kermit of Sweden. I have three posts under my belt. No more. No less.

Yeah, it does that from time to time. It gives new members extra posts for some reason unknown to me. Every once in a while I run a server script that forces a proper recount of the posts. I'll do that now.

Thanks for the heads-up.

Ironically, while I was reading your response, I noticed yet another "free" post had been granted my account.

Yea, I was up at 815 and now I'm down to 777. What's going on here? I know I never got any big boosts or anything like that, why the sudden loss of 30 posts?

It's not that I care about my post count, I just kinda wanted to know where 30 extra posts came from, and how I never noticed it. Not a big deal, but 30 is pretty high to just lose.

As I said refore, this is a recurring problem with vBulletin. I don't know where the extra numbres are coming from. Part of the problem, but not all of it, is to to vBulletin not adjusting the counters when threads are deleted. That doesn't account for most of the discrepencies, though.

Don't sweat it, folks. It's not like anyone needs to know EXACTLY how many times you've posted. If you have several hundred already, being off by +/- 20 or 30 isn't a big deal.

The last time I recounted, every member on the forum had 20 extra posts. Exactly. No idea why.

If there was a fix for it, I'd implement it ASAP.

I, for one, will not rest until this situation is resolved. Your explanations are insufficient, Bradley. You obviously fail to see the scope of this far reaching problem.

This is right up there with the TV going fuzzy for 1 second, and having a penny fall out of your pocket.

This is really making me reevaluate my association with this board. An extra post or two is one thing.. but TWENTY?!

Horrible.

Anyone here willing to shell out the money for a new vBulletin license?

No?
No?

Well, I guess we're stuck with what we've got, then.
