Why aren't my posts being counted?
« on: Fri, 14 June 2019, 12:11:22 »
You may find that your post count is not increasing, despite making posts and actively engaging in discussion on the forum.  This is due to the way the various subforums are setup, such that subforums directly related to keyboards and keyboard activity will count posts, while those related to chatter and buying/selling will not. 

Since this has come up as a discussion point many times in the past, I figured it was high time to officially document which subforums do and do not count posts, as an easy reference for anyone curious. 

(Note that if you do want to check your "unfiltered" post count, you can do so by viewing your Profile -> Show Posts -> Click to the last page, and see the post number listed next to your oldest post)

Thanks for this.

We've sort of had a general idea, but it's nice to have the rules all collected in one place.
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

Any lost posts are lost, sadly.  :(  And if there is ever another hard count of posts like happened last summer (?), you may see a similar shift in post count.  How exactly the forum normally keeps up with this is unclear to me. 

LOL, I think most users have a pretty high ratio of off-topic to keyboard posts.  :))

Everything you have said in the past has been false so I will keep my hope.
