Hi everyone! I'm a little confuse kindly help me. Is the number under my avatar corresponds to the number of post/discussions I've started or to the number of my responds to discussions? Last night I was aiming for my 100th posts and to have the star. But I've noticed that the number under my avatar is not increasing though I've responded to a lot of discussions and started at least 2 posts. The number was stuck to 92. Are responds to discussions not considered a post? Please help mylotters. Thanks!

Hi there iskayz! How are you doing? Well, the number under your avatar represents the number of responses you made to discussions started by other people. Apart from that it includes the number of discussions you have started. However, your the discussions you have started will only count if and when you get at least one response to the discussions you have started. So if you started at least 2 posts and no one replied yet, your discussions will not be counted. The number under your avatar may also decrease if and when the discussion/s you started or the discussions that you responded to gets deleted. Good luck to you!

That number can include discussions you've started and responses you've made but it doesn't count every post. I'll try to explain...your started discussion doesn't get counted until someone else responds to it. You can get a maximum of two 'credits' per discussion you respond to, one for your first response to it and another for your first comment left on another response. Any other posts you make...multiple posts within the same discussion and started discussions with no responses will not be added to your post count. However, sometimes there are glitches here and your post count doesn't go up no matter what you do. You may be experiencing a glitch and should contact mylot about it if you know for sure that the posts you've made should have counted but didn't.
