My post counter has a problem...

At some point (I think it was after post #23), my counter stalled for a couple of posts and then started up again. It’s not that I’m obsessive about how many times I’ve spouted off here. I’m just puzzled. Did the omnipotent hamster about which I’ve heard many terrible legends judge two of my posts to be too insignificant to count? Could it happen again? Will this post be moved to the “General Questions” or “About This Message Board” board? Help.

I suspect it’ll be moved to ATMB, and I also suspect it was just a temporary glitch. :slight_smile:

You can also find some more information on your problem here… I bet it’s the same issue that we discussed in that thread.

Thank you for the replies. :slight_smile:

In particular, I was happy to read the thread you linked to, White Lightning. It’s good to know I’m not the only one who has experienced this. Now that I think about it, there were a couple of times when a message of mine hadn’t posted right away but then showed up later. Those were probably the ones that weren’t counted.

So, thanks again. I appreciate it.

Well, either that or your posts *were * too insignificant to count. :smiley:

Seems like it would be fairly easy to run a proggie once in a while that would tally up your posts and correct your post count. Not that it’s worth doing anything like that unless it gets really out of hand.

I’ve just noted recently that some new members have a 0 post count in their very first post. Same glitch I suppose.

It doesn’t matter. thanks to the SDMB winter nobody’s post counts are anywhere near right. Nobody cares anymore.
