What happened to my post count?
« on: July 06, 2009, 01:48:04 AM »
Something very screwy just happened.  My browser started acting strange, so I exited Elliquiy and logged back in.  When I did so, my post count dropped from about 104 to 86.

Not a tremendous deal, mind you.  But strange.

Anyone know what caused this, or how to rectify the situation?

My own count went down a bit as well. I think those posts were likely from the Doormat thread, which was finished as a new one was started, and moved to games/socializing, where posts don't count. If that is it, it's not a glitch in the system. It's much more likely than an individual browser problem hacking into E and deleting your posts, I think.

My post count went down as well. I know it doesn't count when you post on the Games and such but I haven't. *Shrugs* Just FYI, like Banderas said...No real biggie! =)

Yes it is too a biggie, by god! This is the third friggin time I've come close to 3,000 posts, only to have them yanked away by some strange machination of fate. This time, I was only 3 posts away!  >:(

This probably happened because I moved the old Doormat thread into Forum Games / Socializing. Any posts that you made in the first Doormat would no longer count towards your post count.

If it matters so much to you guys, though, I can always move it back? :P

Yes, it was because Caeli moved the thread. Didn't realize it accounted for that now O_o

Well, thank you for your participation in the doormat : )

Try being about 20 posts away from being one of the top 10 posters on E... >.>

* Caeli has shifty eyes.

I can offer cake, ice cream, or bacon to soothe your post count woes?

By all means, leave it where it is!  I'm fine with the meagre drop in my post count. 

I like being an "Orgiest", anyway.

Yeah. I stopped participating in Round Numbers and all the other fun post count-related activities a while ago. It's no fun when you keep getting screwed like this.

It's all good; I just wanted to know what happened. Thank y'all for the explanation.

I'm with Desan, I know post counts aren't THAT big of a deal, but I was kind of proud of the fact that I was nearing 4 grand.

I think I lost like a hundred posts here. Not too big of a deal but still kind of sucks.

Maybe the Intro-Archive would be a good place for it? So those who are unapproved or whatever can see the previous happenings?
