Hello,
What is "posts" that appears at the bottom of each message. I presume its the number of posts/replies from a member since he registered Right???
If so then why doesnt it increase when i post new replies???So i assumed maybe its done on a weekly basis
Now have a look at my "posts" in these 3 threads. In 2 of them its showing the same although i posted a few more in between. In a third one the posts have actually decreased from 77 to 75???

Cheers

Your count will always be right (ie you won't 'lose' posts), the individual page counts may be wrong.
As I understand it, the UBB software that the Ranch run on allows server side caching to reduce response times.
Therefore if you reply to a post on page A, your posts may show '70'. If you post elsewhere a few times and no-one posts on page A, page A will stay '70'. If you post again to page A, the previous post value and the new one will both be updated to the new post value eg '75' when the page is rebuilt...
