    Hey..

    I just hit 600 posts today!

    Does each forum have like post points? Because sometimes my post count will go up +2 or even +3 when it is only supposed to be +1 depending on which forum I am in..

    I just turned 800 posts today. I'm not sure about the psots count, as far as I know (and as logic would have you think) it only goes up by one for every time you post a message.

    Sometimes it will go up only once..

    But I even wrote down my post count on paper, replied and watched it go up twice!

    I've noticed this as well, but just figured I was imagining it or something. I now see another person realized this as well...

    More likely is the hypothese of a forgotten previous post that is suddenly added to your count. I stayed a whole week at 33 posts while i posted a lot. And it started giving me "extra-points" the next week.

    Some forums (for example the Beginner's Corner, I believe) will raise your post count with 2 for each message you post.

    Ask Matt & Co. for details

    If you post in General Chat your post count will not go up. It is the same for advisors in their private forums.

    I just hit 1000 today...and i dont think different forums have more post x.

    i think you might have replied in another browser window, then replied in another, and it looks like it goes up twice...

    i mean that would be stupid if beginners corner did that. is that true?

    I'm inclined to believe you Matt..I dont know how it works or why, but I've noticed my posts jump too. I dont know anything about certain forums having more post counts though. Hmmm.

    I've noticed the same thing - I'll post a bunch of times and then look at my count, and I'll feel as if I thought it should be higher - and sometimes it'll seem to be a post or two higher than I thought it was.

    I could be wrong, but hearing everyone else say it as well has got me covinced.

    Elledan: you said "Ask Matt & Co. for Details" - do you have some info on this?
