    Hi all,

    First off, I want to congratulate all involved parties on this tremendous effort to revamp the Lounge. Way to go!

    Secondly, following my first post after the New Lounge, I noticed the post count says 855. However I recall it being around 925 or so. I am not the most frequent Lounger, so I might be wrong, but feel pretty sure about this.

    I recall that in the Old Lounge posts in the Scuttlebutt forum used to increase the post count, when some years back the Admins decided this wouldn't be so from that point on. So perhaps in the move to the new software the portion of my post count stemming from my posting in the days of the old Scuttlebutt system were lost? Just a thought.

    Surely Admins have to take care of more serious stuf right now, but I wanted to let you know.

    Not lost, but rather recalculated. I noticed this a few days ago because I went from a 5 star Lounger to a 4 star. The response to my query at the time was that when migration took place, all postings to Scuttlebutt going back to day 1 were eliminated.
    So, you just have to start posting again to rebuild your count.
    Regards,
    Bob

    As Bob Archell noted, the new software recalculates your post count on the fly. Posts in Puzzles, Scuttlebutt and Test Area don't count, and neither do deleted posts. This has a large impact on Loungers who post a lot in Scuttlebutt etc., and none on Loungers who never post there.

    And here I was, so PROUD to be a Uranium Lounger. Now I'm back to Platinum, stripped of my medal!

    The past just doesn't count anymore. As Rodney Dangerfield would have said: We just don't get no respect !

    If my memory serves me correctly Bob, there was rather a large party when you became (was it the first?) Uranium Lounger. Now we will have to party all over again

    I noticed your profile says you are 98 years old ... If that is the case, you'd better get busy typing those replies to build your count back up so we can all party soon!

    I put that date in there just to see if anyone ever looks at that.
    Actually, I'm only 97+. Check my personal photo out. Talk about well preserved!

    Yeah, that WAS a rather big "blast." Just recovering from it and now a retro step back!

    Looks like we both lost around 900 posts. I did not realise how much I used to post in Scuttlebutt/puzzles. Or maybe the mods/admins have just been deleting all of our posts

    I like to see what my favorite people have in their profiles! And yes, I noticed your handsome pic! It is a good one!

    One more thing: I didn't receive mail notifications alerting me to the fact that someone had replied to my first post in this thread. Is this common behavior in the new Lounge? A quick glance at the FAQ did not help.

    Thanks Hans. I have finally got round to reading this post and related ones. It's still a little unclear to me how it works, but I made some modifications:
    - Changed my mail settings from "Controls"
    - From the "Other software applications" forum's Options, chose "Subscribe to this forum".

    Let's see how it goes.

    Maybe I'm missing something but it appears as if the "posts-counter" doesn't update at all; at least not when I look through a thread (e.g. like this one) and see maybe people responding more than once while their count still remains the same... Odd or am I missing something?
