My Number Of Posts Are Going Down!

Wed Aug 16, 2006 10:29 pm

I was just checking how many posts i have made on a.net before, and wondering how many more i had since the last time i checked (890). I looked on my profile and was amazed to see the number 845!

Whats happend? I have not been notified about any posts being deleted ?:-(

If you replied to a whole thread that was deleted, only the thread-starter is notified of the deletion. None of the members who replied are notified.

Yep, just look at the latest pointless "word game" thread:

True, but those threads are the only ones where you can actually get such a high number, and they only get locked but not deleted. 45 posts looks like a strangely high number no matter how you look at it.

Actually, I have been notified of post deletions due to replys by quoting another user's post or thread that was deleted.

It could have just happened because my first and only posts deleted were from quoting another thread and post that were themselves deleted. Maybe after a few times, A.Net figures "you get the message," and silently deletes posts.

Not really... If your post is deleted for referencing a deleted post, but the thread stays, you will always receive a notification. On the other hand, if the whole thread is deleted and you are not the thread starter, you will not receive a notification.

Yeah, I was sort of thinking of those threads but why would one have been deleted?

Aaron, why does it matter how many posts you have? It's just a number, and as far as I'm concerned, quality counts far more than quantity.

If you really want to find out where these posts went, just do a search... it can't be easy to forget a thread you posted in 45 times!

I recently received an e-mail from A.net notifying me that a thread that I had replied to had been deleted, resulting in a deletion of my post (I wasn't the thread starter).  Confused

Nope, but one number that is smaller than a big one shows less effort than has been put in.

haha!

If you post very much in the Word Games (I didn't say you do), the effort making the posts is little.  Wink

I'd like to post 100 very high quality posts (like for example Paul Markman does) instead of 500 low-quality.  Wink
