    Did anybody else's postcount also dropped by, like, a hundred??

    Is that maybe because of the removal of the IF board??

    I think it is the removal of the IF board, where a lot of people posted. I noticed my post count dropped by a bit too. Oh well, it makes me seem less obsessed... :p

    The posts gained from the forums that were removed recently were kept intact, but just now all posts on these forums were reduced from the posters counter. I lost around 80 posts.

    it's weird, i lost some posts too (can't say how many, i'm really not looking at my post count that much) but if i were to lose all posts i made - say - on what was the sonata arctica board i guess i'd drop by some three hundred. :err:
    well, as i suggested seventi on another thread, contacting mark is the surest way to know exactly what happened. i wouldn't worry much about it anyway, we all know and respect each other regardless of how big our, ehrm, post count is. :)

    Wierd, I know I didn't have this many outside IF board...musta been done by some kind of ratio. It shows all my previous posts. I've been trying to get to them, but its really slow. I doubt it will work anyway.

    I guess that means that they did not only remove the forum from the webserver but also deleted everything in the database. Or something..

    I don't know how many I lost and I don't know how many posts I have. I'd guess I have something like 600.. let's see :)

    But i think you don't have to say the exact number ( it would be difficult) just say it more or less
