    If you make posts in the same thread right in a row without using the "edit post" button (you can within an hour), usually a mod will combine all of them into a single post as they should be; making your post count go down.

    If a thread gets too far off track, a moderator can edit/delete posts to clean it up; making your post count go down.

    If an entire thread gets deleted for any reason; your post count will go down.

    ect.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    yeah I'm sure a mod looked at upbasher's post #783 and said "you know what, that was post completely useless, in fact this is a waste of internets"

    I wish the Edit timer was a little longer, a day or so would be nice.

    I agree. There has been more than just a few times that I have just missed the limit when there were mistakes in my information.

    There are a few things that I think should be changed with the mechanics of this site. Like the 1 minute timer between posts. I understand that it is in place to stop spamming... but I think the limit should be removed after you hit a certain post count.

    Yes both those things can be of extreme irritation lol.

    Wha the ?!?!?! My posts just went down to 1,922???? Thats a drop of almost 90 posts! What happened??

    I am also very annoyed by the 1 minute timer between posts. I think after about 2-300 posts it should be removed for you.

    I don't know why or even if what you claim is happening but I wonder why it's important. The quality of posts is far more important than the quantity. This is likely another reason for the one minute delay. There are far too many people who would post heaps of junk if the 10-character and 60-second requirements were not in place. This is even true for past members of this forum with many more than 1000 posts.

    One of the reasons behind ones post count dropping, is the house cleaning that goes on in the MP. There are many threads that are left unattended, and us Marshall end up deleting them from time to time. Doing so keeps the clutter down, and our forum running as smooth as possible.

    And +1 on ksb's post, its all about the quality of a post.

    Man, id just like to +2 on the above ^^. There are so many instances where comments are posted that are either incorrect or just pointless. Its irritating. If you dont have something useful to say (for the most part, fun posts are fine from time to time) dont say anything. Posting helpful info once a day is better than posting 100 useless comments.

    Yep I agree. Theres lots of people that post just to post. I don't really post unless I have something useful to say. Unless of course its in the alley, like here.
