    Default number of posts

    Wondering why my number of posts only shows one when I have replied to quite a few threads. Is this only the number of new threads I started? Just wondering....

    General chat forum doesn't increase post count.

    Because posts to other areas add more content to fv.

    Mostly to encourage posts to go into the right forum categories in order to get "credit" for the post. But it's also because post count is often seen as a person being a large contributor. No posts counted in the off topic forum balances out low post/high quality and high post/off topic.

    To clarify, many members have low posts counts, but contribute so much. They shouldn't be looked upon as low contributors compared to someone with thousands of posts that are off topic.

    All posts contributed make the FV world go 'round and are all appreciated, but this helps balance things out. Of course, this was just started in the last yr, so there are many members with posts that were counted before this went into effect. If/when I ever update the counters, that would change.

    It's important to add more to that. Posts in other sections are typically more on topic vs off topic. Plenty of posts in general chat are on topic. I sometimes move them to the correct category. It's one part of what keeps frugality to the forefront.
