Why is my post count stuck at 489? and not continuing to go up higher, Is that means is about to hit 6502a so I can set a avatar and it takes time before the post count start going where it should be at instead of stuck at 489?

It is possible that a thread you posted in has been deleted or a post that you have made has been deleted. You have 485 posts.

Edit: To add to simsaladimbamba's post, neither do posts in Console Gaming and there may be some more.

I'm not sure about your specific case, but there are some sections of the forum that don't count towards post count and sometimes posts are removed - not necessarily because yours break any rules, but they may reply to deleted posts or get trashed with entire threads.

You'll get there soon enough.

But don't break any rules while doing it. i.e don't spam the forum or post lots of one word/useless posts!

Find more post's by David085, not the Profile earlier didn't know about checking the Profile until now.
Ah, the search function is limited, it will always show, that you have less than 500 posts. It fluctuates, I don't know why, but once it could only show 314 posts via that search.
Look at posters with more than 1000 posts or 500 threads (waloshin) and you will see, that "Find all posts" function will not find all posts.
