Just checking in to say that I know imav has been looking into some things related to the site. However, I don't know what, if anything, he's found in relation to postcounts. Will continue to update as I find out more.

I lost around 500 overnight. I was closing in on 3000, not barely above 2000.

I lost another 3,000 or so... :eek: :spam:


I suggest anyone with any content only hosted  on this forum to back it up. These little things usually lead up to a big crash.

Yeah the counts  are still messed up from when this thread was started.

The most recent deduction that seemed to happen in the last day or two was corrected but not the initial problem from over 2 weeks ago.

I know I've gotten several days of emails all in a block before. Let me do some digging.

I feel like 50% of the time I have that happen.

Every once in a while I'll also get a notification of a post from a few months ago.

Basically, I think the emails have always been a bit broken.

Slightly off-topic for the moment, but email notifications are working for me again

E: also, my postcount still isn't what it was before any of the issues either.

I'm still down about 500.
People in the 1980s, in general, were clearly just better than we are now in every measurable way.

Ripster's ghost has come back to haunt us :spooky

Could it be that certain threads have too many posts and it's causing issues with the database? I know on another forum (different board software) that's a problem over a certain number of posts per thread so they ask users to cap it and create new threads.

My post count has remained the same [edit: wait about 10 posts are missing since last time I visited this thread] but I notice a few others who post in some of the megathreads have had thousands missing. If it were related to the larger threads it might make some sense. Just speculating.

Cool. I was getting close to 4,700 before they all got messed up. I won't be heartbroken if it can't be fixed, but it would be nice.

You didn't have over 17K that counted. 

I was down ~6K, now it's more like 3K.

The post counts are CORRECT.  Note, if you had posts counted from a forum that was later changed to not have posts counted towards your total...a recount wipes those out.  They would not get wiped up unless a recount was initiated (which is not part of any regular maintenance task).

Yeah iMav said that it is fixed but with the recount you may have lost posts due to the changes that caused different forums to count for posts and stuff.
