    I noticed today the number of posts attributed to me were suddenly decreased, it appeared to coincide with a Thread closure (not my OP), it had happened before but I had never connected it to any thing in particular, doesn't seem right somehow?
    I can see it if the thread is deleted, but the posts are still visible?
    I have never come across this happening on any other forum?

    Should only happen if the thread is deleted or moderated, but I'm not sure.

    Or if the thread is moved to off topic, which doesn't count.

    Hello,

    It can happen that when you replied to a spammer and the spammers thread is removed, that the post you made is decreased on your post count.
    I do not know if closing a thread (wich I did in the fleamarket) will decrease the postcount.

    You got all snobby about your beer, so we removed some of your post count. That'll teach you! ;)

    Mmmhhhh... maybe the mafia had something to do with it... they send in their thugs and say "this never happened" or "you saw nothing"

    I noticed this thread was closed and the count dropped by around the number I had posted in it, Coincidence?

    I don't look at my count either, but it's 444 less than yours.

    Start a nonsense thread. Have everyone post once or twice and note their number of posts. Then have a moderator delete it.

    That will tell you if the deletion of a thread caused the problem.

    I thought this topic was going to be about Martha Stewart.
