    I noticed last night there were a few of you new guys with 0 posts or maybe 1 post showing on your details, but saw several actual posts from you guys in threads. I think it was just a glitch in the system. Hope you get it fixed so you can fully enjoy this site the way it's meant to be.

    I actually PM'd the mods last week. Its been happening to me for over a little more than a week so far. Seems to be no rhythm to it.

    I saw the same thing. When you click on your name, and view the posts from you, the total posts there differs from the post count.

    Recently, due to users cut/copy/pasting greetings to new folks in the Introduce Yourself forum in order to run up their post count, the mods and HF staff decided that posts there should no longer be counted in the user's post count. In one recent instance, a user had copy pasted 36 greetings in 1/2 an hour, in an effort to reach 50 posts. This policy went into effect about 8 days ago.

    Posts in the Introduce Yourself forum will no longer count towards your user post count.

    I'm sure it's not all that thrilling to be "carpet bombed" with cut and paste "greetings from X". Whoohoo. Gee thanks.

    Good call on the change.

    I never did have near the confidence in an item FS from someone who had 45 "howdy" posts, their own introductory posts, and a few "+1"'s with the FS as post 50 or 51 compared to someone with the same 50+ post count that had shown up on several varied threads and engaged in conversation in them.

    that's pretty smart.
    until today I hadn't realized there was a minimum post count needed to sell, but i appreciate the logic behind that policy and this one.
