    I've had a couple posts either not appear or disappear after posting.

    I'm not blaming any admins, I just wanted to know because there's not even an "[Edit: removed]" or anything so I'm a bit confused.

    I recently tooled around with Safari so it may be that.

    Admins, anything?

    Posts in threads that go into the Wasteland get taken away from your post count.

    It happens sometimes.

    I misspelled disappearing.. god damn it.

    Anyways yeah I think I got one of each of the above (off topic, reply to spam, connectivity problems).

    Thx, I thought I'd done something wrong.

    Posts in the political section don't count. So if you posted in a thread that suddenly got moved to the political section, well...then you have a couple of posts to make up.

    BTW: I noticed a sudden drop in my post count two weeks ago, where I lost about 100 posts. Though I haven't figured out the cause of that. Was there an option changed?

    Wastelanded and Political forum posts aren't removed from post count automatically. So when maintenance is done, post counts change if you have some in there :D
