    To commemorate, I've got a new sig pic to celebrate the release of Monsters Inc today.

    Have a nice day.

    ...and if you're really lucky, you'll be able to celebrate this occasion again and again. (In other words, your post count will shrink due to deletion of threads you've posted in; I guess that's how that works)

    Congrats, but it doesn't mean anything because of the way the post count works. It goes down when threads get deleted. I'm still trying to figure out what's the point of that "feature".

    What's weird, Steeve, is that (since we post in many of the same threads) my post count was near or just above yours at one time and now mine has dropped considerably. I just find that...well, weird. [​IMG]

    Jez, I would probably be at 2500 posts if "Word Association" never got deleted [​IMG]

    Congrats, Dave.

    (Only certain threads get deleted, and one's post count doesn't necessarily have to shrink or fluctuate. And it's not a "feature," but just the nature of the software that makes this place possible.)

    Thanks Jack, since all of my threads are meaningful, insightful works of literary art (like my Nikki McKibbin appreciation thread) I shouldn't expect my count to shrink one post! [​IMG]

    See, that's what I'm wondering; Steeve and I post in just about the exact same threads, but his stayed the same whereas mine was knocked down almost 400. So, how's it that "one's post count doesn't necessarily have to shrink or fluctuate"?

    Rain your post count seems to be running in reverse, you'll be passing mine soon at this rate, whappened?

    That make sense, Cees.

    But for those of us whose post counts seem to be going in reverse, it is a bit perplexing. I've seen mine go down by a few hundred at a time and there is no way purging a few old threads would account for that.

    It's not a big deal anyway, but I do have to wonder if there is a little glitch somewhere in whatever programming is in place for the post counts.

    (For future reference, this is 4382)

    Easy. Post in threads that don't end up on the chopping block (i.e., the ones in the content areas). Non-archival material gets deleted to free up space. There is no glitch.
