FYI: All posts on PRSI also don't count toward your post count. I have this feeling that there may be another sub forum where posts don't count toward post count...but for the life of me I can't remember which one if I'm right.If a thread has been deleted by someone I guess any posts a member has added to that thread obviously get deleted too. If so does this mean then that those posts don't then count towards a members ongoing post total?
You can review the FAQ about which forums do not count toward post count totals.FYI: All posts on PRSI also don't count toward your post count.

I'm sure if I'm correct, some other kind soul will provide the information.
If you posted to a thread that was moved to the Wasteland or deleted, those posts will be removed from your total. Individual posts deleted by moderators are also excluded from your post count.
We also don't count posts made to the Politics, Religion, Social Issues forum, the Console Games forum, the Code Sharing and Software Promos forum, and the Marketplace forum.
If your post count reaches a total that entitles you to a new forum privilege, such as uploading an avatar or using the Marketplace forum, the new privilege may not take effect immediately, but it'll work by the following day at the latest.
The picture threads are still very Mac orientated though. Not all of them, but most.Why doesn't the console forum count towards post count? I would think it would. I'm surprised the picture gallery counts towards it since that's such an easy place to post at.
Not that I give two poops about post count, just seems odd to me that users that participate in the console forums don't get credit but those that can screenshot their desktop and take a picture of the door knob they last turned are considered better contributing members. Unless the FAQ is wrong.
No... no they aren't. Here's all the threads I could fit on my screen at once.The picture threads are still very Mac orientated though. Not all of them, but most.
Ok, sure, but here's another thing to remember:No... no they aren't. Here's all the threads I could fit on my screen at once.
What's wrong with discussing alternatives to Mac OS X, iOS, or any other product Apple makes? You can't have a discussion without bringing up the competition.Ok, sure, but here's another thing to remember:
The console section is about consoles and their games, not Macs and iDevices. Same thing with the alternative section. And you can easily post to those everyday, and not bother with the rest of MacRumors. In fact, a lot of people IN the alternative section, don't venture off into other parts of this forum, and when they were, it was mostly to taunt the iPhone guys. And now we get new Android guys everyday because we're more civilized compared to the other Android related places.
Picture threads are easy to participate in, but they aren't something you could use to establish yourself on a forum, like you can with the other sections. Especially here, you probably wouldn't get away with posting a new desktop picture everyday, or your wallet. MAYBE gifs, but soon enough someone will notice.
