There may have been threads that were deleted in which you had posts in.

There may have been threads that were deleted in which you had posts in.Exactly, either

spam
signed ups in achievement trading threads
gamerscore leagueAll of those are frequent causes of lost posts.

If the Staff regard posts as spam they will delete them, you probably had 150 spammy posts that the Staff were more than happy to remove, or posted in some condemned threads that have been removed.

Just be sure not to spam the forums to get your post count up, even if it is in good nature. It just makes more work for the Staff and you'll never catch up to DaWebbmeister anyway.

yeah, it most likely is not because of you having crappy posts... it is usually like kaens said: old threads, closed threads, deleted threads, etc. so if you posted a lot in the GSL area or in a game that is now past its prime, that is probably why.

I have a second question regarding this topic.

I honestly don't care about my Post Count as I love this site with or without it, but one has to wonder...will there ever be so many threads being deleted, that a majority of the senior and current members won't even be allowed to join certain clubs or forums? Ex: 200 and 1000 Clubs that have a 100 Post requirement.

Also, how would that effect the site's Member Rankings?

Thanks for reading guys!

Well, isn't it a 100 post minimum to Sign-Up?
Once you're already signed up, it should matter right?

yes there is a 100 post minimum but if you get it and then post there and then get you posts deleted then they count as spam and it is "100 non-spam posts" so you would have to wait


and Zef if he had 150 spm posts then he would be banned, i got a warning for my only spam post for the entire time i've been here at x360a..... and it wasn't even spam

I have 3000 spam posts and I haven't been banned =D

Once you are signed up to something on the forums that needs certain requirements, which you have met, then you don't usually need to sign up again if your post count goes down unless it does so dramatically. If you are a senior member then you don't have any worries =)

Sounds good to me, Zef. Thanks for the reply guys!:)

P.S. 3000 Spam Post? If the notorious House was still here, she would've already beat you, Zef!:p

Deftone, you had 150 posts that said the exact same thing. Copy and paste in the member profile section isn't cool, especially when it makes up half your post count. Try to switch it up a little bit and there won't be a problem in the future. ;)

Because you always post this:
"Welcome to the site bud enjoy your stay:drunk"
In the member profile section.
