My Post Count is Stuck! (Update: It's working now.)
« on: March 05, 2012, 04:52:46 PM »
Hi, I just noticed that my post count is stuck at 641 for some reason.  Does anyone know if this is an issue on the site?  Is anyone else's post count also stuck and not moving up with each post?

As usual, the moment you mention something, technology makes a liar out of you.  But I will say that it was stuck at 641 for all my earlier posts today (of which there were more than just a few).  I'm not going crazy, I promise!

Yep, it never fails!!

Zilla, the count determines your member status as far as I know.  You will notice that I am a "member" and you are a "hero".  It is the difference in our post counts that determines that.  I think at 1,000 you become a hero (correct me if I'm wrong, anyone).

Correct. New Member is 0-100; member is 100-1000, hero is 1000-5000 (i think); and super hero is 5000+

I believe you... but are you sure that you're not going crazy? >:D

After all, I lost all vestiges of sanity years ago.  Did me a world of good!

You're right, sanity is overrated!  I'm cool with my crazy  8)  Haha, but this time I'm sure of what I saw.  I guess the insane part is that I even notice my post count at all!

Now that you mention it, I think that my post count got stuck once too.  Also the site was down (well for me anyway) a few hours ago, so maybe there was some weird internet glitches going on.  Glad all is "normal" now  :)

I guess what I meant was why would you have noticed it and worried about it?  That's the part that got me curious.  And thank you for that info, I never knew the stars, I thought it had to do with the mods.

I am assuming you see stars under your name, right Zilla?  On my browser all I see is squares.  It says Zilla, Hero Member and then three yellow squares.

Oops yes they are squares.  Like I said I really don't even look, I just kind of saw gold and thought they were stars. :D
