View Full Version : Posts count question
I made 2-3 posts yesterday and they are not showing in my posts count. Am I missing something?

Nope, you're not crazy;)
Posts made in the Padded Room (and a select few others) do not count towards a members total post count.
The reason for this is that the Padded room is generally for light hearted or offtopic conversation, and so adding posts made here to a users' count does not necessarily help other members who view a total number of posts as a measure of quality when evaluating other members profiles.
it's quality vs. quantity. Another reason we like members to take advantage of our Reputation Feature (http://forums.searchenginewatch.com/faq.php?faq=vb_faq#faq_reputationmain)
Thank you Elisabeth. That makes sense, and I like it.
