    Question Posting Count? or No Count?

    How does the posting count work? It does not appear to count multiple posts as they happen. Are they updated daily instead of live?

    once you post your number should increase by one. if you do 10 posts, be it back to back, or an hour apart, your post count will increase by that amout immediately.

    please dont make insignificant postings just to increase a post count. that type of behavior is not tolerated here.

    I would not dream of posting for the sake of posting, but I don't think the counter works. It's not a big deal, but something I noticed.

    Ok, I'll make you a deal, when my posting count passes 200, you kill this stupid thread? I can't have these idiotic ramblings of a duranged man out there when I am a respected, converged member of society.

    Deal?

    I had a thumbnail jpg of a cylon from the old Battlestar Gallactica series that I was going to add to the whole "Convergent is a cyborg" debate. Alas, the moment is gone. But it would have been funny.

    Just to chime in on this... it should normally count realtime. There is an exception. It is possible for a forum to be setup so it doesn't count. This is not done here now, but it may be in the future if we to go a store system where you can buy stuff with points you get from posting. In that cases, some forums would be excluded. Also, if we prune a forum or delete posts in mass because of a spammer or something... the counts will not decrease as they should. So once in a while we may run a routine that redoes the counts and in that case you may see your counts drop. I've not done anything like that in probably 6-9 months, so it is not something that should happen often. In fact, if I were to run it... I'd post ahead of time so you'd know to look for it.

    Thanks for the info. It still doesn't take away from the fact that I'm a moron! But thanks anyway.
