    When I go to my Profile site, under "Mini Statistics" it shows 269 posts.

    I just noticed when I went into "Statistics - Find Posts By Shrink" it indicates 308 posts.

    How come!! :confused:

    Posting in certain sub forums, like PRSI for instance, does not count towards your 'official' post count used to determine things like access to Marketplace or the ability to have an avatar.

    Thanks, mate.:D

    So, I guess it doesn't pay to spam in PRSI just to get my post count up. :rolleyes: ;)

    I promise - no spam.

    Just ill-considered, poorly reasoned, irrelevant, and offensive posts from now on. ;)

    (And before you say it - that describes all of my posts to this point :p )

    Again, thanks...

    Both numbers are the same in my profile and I post in PRSI quite a bit.

    Same here, though I don't post in PRSI as often.

    This ^ (note the bolt text)

    In addition to the other comments, if you post in a thread that ends up in Wasteland, those posts won't show in your post count on your profile, but will show in your "Find Posts by..." count.
