    I don't get what you are asking?

    Your post count here is 13 posts (thanked 21 times in 19 posts) - this could be because if you post in certain boards like the off-topic forum then those posts don't add to your post count. - I assume this is to stop people talking fraff with the intention of boosting their post count.

    I hope I was helpful, I think I answered your question,

    Peace,
    Gh0zt

    Thank you for helping, Gh0zt.

    Still, under profile/statistics/find all posts it shows results now 67 posts (3 pages) of reviews and feedback to wso purchases on the pertinent threads.

    WF Rule was/is? 60 posts (which had to be discussion-thread-type posts and not wso posts) to use PM function - which I've been using without problem.

    Why are only 13 posts shown? Is there a default postion I need to enable/check somewhere? Just gotta fix this some how. Any help much appreciated.

      Chrisxya, your post count won't include any posts that you make in the WSO section, which appears to be where you've made the vast majority of your 60+ posts. It also won't include posts made in the Off Topic forum. There's nothing you can do to change that; it's the way this forum is set up.

    Hmm... I don't actually know - the only thing it *looks* like is that perhaps WSO review posts don't add to your post count now?

    I noticed when you posted in this thread again your post count went to 14

    If your PM is working fine, what do you need to fix? You would like your 67 posts to show under your avatar?

    Thanks. Yes, the post count now is increasing lol.

    Good question. Warriors looking for reviewers sometimes stipulate 50 posts as minimum before applying

    Cali16,

    Thanks for explaining situation.

    The PM function rule got me. Maybe it no longer applies?

    As long as I can use the PM function, I'm okay but as explained in answer to GhOtz below, the post count is critical.

      It doesn't. But in any case, you're a War Room member, so you'd have the PM facility and expanded message-storage, anyway.

        Oh I see, well that certainly makes sense why you'd want your count to show up then

        Thanks for the reminder. What have I missed...

    I'm not sure why the post count doesn't count in the WSO section. An honest review is an important and valuable post for potential buyers.

      I think one reason is that there are so many members who are here only to sell WSO's. By the time they reply to every question in their own threads, they'd have an enormous post-count without ever having contributed anything to the forum at all apart from selling things to us.

      There also used to be people whose entire post-count was accounted for by posts in WSO threads asking for "review copies" (not allowed, now - thankfully).
