    I could have sworn yesterday that I had 553 posts. Now I'm down to 526 give or take 1. And now I've got more than Uguel. :eek: How is that possible? :doubt: I don't think I'm seeing things, but I don't know. What do you think Uguel? Does yours look right?
    EDIT. OK. I don't know if this is a coincidence or not, but this post should have been #526. I had 27 PM's in my inbox. 526+27=553. I deleted all of tham at once and this post automatically changed from #526-#527. Huho_O? o_O OK Paul, what's the joke?

    No joke sir.

    We've just been doing some winter cleaning. Whenever we cleanup old threads/posts or do any similar maintenance, people's posts counts adjust along with it. (I'm down about 100 myself.)

    It's kinda like a lottery. And as I'm sure you know, you can't win if you don't play. :D

    Heck, I think EVERYONE who participates in 10-Forward is kind of out-of-it. (Except for myself, of course). :rolleyes:

    Ladies and gents,

    Don't put the blame on LWM - it has been me handling the broom stick ;) ducking...

    FYI: two forums are cleaned out on a regular basis: the Test Forum and Ten Forward. "Tests"are just that - and don't have any purpose in staying up in general.

    As for TF: a vast amount of totally outdated (and sometimes in the meanwhile incorrect) posts as well as countles posts no one ever looked at for months (sometimes over a year) in a row just have been sitting there, abandonned and merely using up precious disk space. No reason in any way to let them gather dust.

    For long-time TF regulars, this cleaning house will indeed have affected their numbers of posts - as probably will be the case next round. I myself have lost 200+ posts this time.

    That said: in the end it's not the numbers but the quality and fun that counts over on TF :cool:

    regards.

    paul

    Hey, now there's a thought -- set the system up so any "housecleaning" also reduces the karmas of appropriate posters in proportion to the numbers of their posts removed. :D
