    So instead of the post count being historical reflection of board participation it is a current running tally of all posts still in the system?

    No doubt!!!
    Unless it is a recent post, the proof required is unrealistic, and a convenient ruse, which has probably worked with sites whose members are not dedicated, unlike those on this site.
    VS should just admit that it intentionally and/or accidentally "lost/deleted data" while transference and/or clearing space.

    If posts are missing and that is why the post count has been lowered how would any member have Poof of missing posts? Is there a back up of all of the data from this site or not? If there is then tech should be able to figure out what is missing and restore it. If not and they Disappeared the data then again they should be able to answer the question. Some members post counts have changed by hundreds or more. That is not simply explained away by saying that the new count reflects the accurate total.

    At the end of the day post counts on an internet forum I imagine aren't a priority problem for a tech team. For those of us who have been here a long time, and thoughtfully contributed to this community, it is a bit disappointing to have this seemingly pushed back on the members to prove that our posts are missing. As The Great 308 put it above - who keeps proof of their posts?

    I worked in IT for many, many years and found myself in a similar position of having to explain that sometimes you just don't know why things run off the rails without a lot of digging. It happens and you have to balance the resources needed to run down a tricky problem versus the rewards. I get it, I really do, and while my post count is several hundred posts less than it should be, I'm done worrying about it. Besides, I'm pretty sure Tony and Toosixy have a team of foreign hackers working day and night to siphon post counts to themselves...

    Neither--- IT is probably contracted out to the lowest bidder!!!

    Mine were a bit over 10k over a year or so, and now are in the 8ks. I hope this doesn't mean I have to give back the free HK21 I received for my 10,000th post...

    Hello all,

    I'll bring this up to the team when I can. I'll see what we can do about this.
    But if the techs have already indexed the post count on their end, this should be the post count that users are at.

    Please standby for more updates and sorry for the inconvenience,

    Ed
