What is the number next to your name?

Well i had thought that the number was how many posts you had made, with your discussions only counting as one no matter how many times you replied to it, but mine just went from 59 to 101 with one post.. what exactly does that mean?

It's the number of responses - the more people respond to you, the better your rating. So if you ask, "What's your name" and 5 people respond "lucy", "jack", "april", "tom", "kate" you go up 5. So its better to ask questions and put info people want to talk about so your rating goes up!

I was just going to ask about this myself. I woke this morning and had 400, and didn't post all day, and I'm now up to over 700. I guess it's all good. =) Thank you!

It can't be the number of posts you've made because I was like 200-something when I first joined. I remember wondering if the number beside my name was my member number, like if I was the 507th person to become a member then it would say "Backpack30 (507)" and that would make sense, but that wasn't it. I wonder what that number is.....

i think that it is like what i had said it was originally.. one for each post, except for when you respond to your own discussions.. as far as you starting with 200 somethin, thats weird

i think that maybe the responses dont add up right away.. that could be a part of that reason

I thought and still do that the number or rating next to your name was the number of posts you have done. I you notice evertime you post something it will go up by one. A little bit ago though my did jump to almost double what I had. Since I c that several people opened discussions about it I would assume that was just a glitch. So back to work peoples the number aren't going to up by themselves and remember to rate people.

there was a system glitch - the number under your name is how many posts youve done
