hi badfish, That is the number of post you have made. Like for example (12), it means you have made 12 posts which includes your started discussion, like this one and the replies or responses you made on other topics. It is best if you read facts and guidelines of mylot first. and by the way "Welcome to Mylot"!!! Hope you'll enjoy your stay in here. Have fun! Happy Lotting!
