    Default Post Counts

    Not that I keep up with it on every post (until latley).

    Has anyone ever had there post count stick. My last 20 or so posts record 176. For some reason it wont change. It really is not that big of a deal but was wondering if anyone could explain why this happens.

    I sure wouldn't worry myself over that. Are you keeping score? I sure don't.

    Do you look at it every time, or did you just happen to notice your last few posts showing the same number?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think as you go, every post you ever made is updated to your current post count, so if you looked back to a post that you made a year ago, it would have your current post count on it.

    Yep rossco is right, your signature and your post count are updated for everything.

    For all the life of me, i cant see a firefighter going to hell. At least not for very long. We would end up putting out all the fires and annoying the devil too much.

    I honestly had no idea of how many posts that I really had out there, so I went out and Counted:

    West Side: Three Rail Style Fence along Horse Pasture. 117 Posts
    North Side: Barb Wire Fence between our Soybeans and Neighbors Wheat Field. 82 Posts
    East Side: Barb Wire Fence Between our Soybeans and Neighbors Overgrown, Unkempt, Trashy Looking Weed Patch. 70 Posts

    And That's the post count here.
