    I was just wondering why my post was inconsistent. One post I will have over 500 the next less than 350. I don't really care what my what my post count is, just curious as to why it was happening. Thanks.

    I think it happens when big threads get deleted, f ex a poll or a tournament. Your post count will deflate with the number of posts in the thread that was deleted. It has happened to me as well, I remember having 2222 posts at one point, but no big deal really.

    Wes:

    Bjorn is correct in saying that your post count probably went down when a thread that you participated in was deleted. We have been deleting a lot of the larger files in the After Hours lounge that no one is participating in any longer. So if you have a bunch of posts in a particular thread that was deleted your post count will go down too.
