    Seems like I've been on 366 forever. Do I have something set wrong?

    I think they stopped counting when you post in your own thread. I also think they down't get counted if the post is short.

    I just don't get the point of even worrying about post count. What the big deal. I think people just look at how many years you have been with the site and judge from there.

    Off topic posts are not counted.

    Thanks Jodi.

    Check out this thread:
    http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.php?t=36783&highlight=Joel+B.

    I have 4 posts in this thread and they are all say "Posts 367", doesn't the post count increase by one for each post made? What am I missing here?

    Ok, yes, each post counts. So the thread you showed as example, 4 posts were added to your total.
    Just like in this thread. My post count was 4247, when I posted the second post it increased to 4248, and now this post changed it to 4249.
    The post count then changes to your current total on every post you made.

    Is off topic the only one that it doesn't count? Like does it count on the pic forum, etc.?

    the off topic and the website discussion forum are the 2 forums that I know of where the post count does not increase.

    Something is very weird here, you have 4 posts in this topic, and on my screen they all say the same post count "Posts: 4250". I have two posts and each one says "Posts: 368".

    Do I have something set wrong?
