Well ... make a post, look at your post count, delete the post, and then look at your post count. You will lose all the posts you made in a deleted thread from your number of posts, because a deleted post is a deleted post so far as your post count is concerned.

Perhaps I should make this the 'Milestones Thread' instead?

Oh, but then you'll lose tractakid's inspired 100,000th post! The thread was worth it just for that.

Honestly, Tube Geek. I know it was another typo but you're so careless with these things...

(Unless you seriously think that 3023 is more than 5000, of course.)

Quite honestly, as pointless threads on this forum go, at least I'm enjoying this one - with an internet connection that can take several seconds to upload a post, Nimbleweed and Postsnap hold very little appeal.

Right. It was me who went over 5000, not you!

That's a whole new type of error I haven't come across before. Do you think you're me?
