I have updated manually the POST COUNT for the recent newbie with the reported problem.

Hope it's all OK now. 

Please report related issues here, thanks

it seems that the PA forum database has reach another limit, we have too much members, posts. The system can't handle it well anymore, I will need to work this out and it may be long, so please be patient with this issue.

I am confident that the posts count will be re-calculated OK when I fix this.

Thanks

Max
Hey M@X,
 
 
 
 
is this post count issue so important to you or can it simply be dropped... I mean some people are fascinated by their post count numbers and will do anything to increase it to post uselessly... just to appear as an ancient one, for ex...
 
conversely, some members are probably embarrassedEmbarrassed by their high post count and wished it would disappear (or at least hide it.... I know I'd feel better if mine was inferior to 5000 or better yet inexistent to public viewing (just imagine your employer  finding out your username then seeing that you've posted 60 000 times on this forum and starting to view the posting times and dates) but eventually me and admins... maybe it (post count) can be hidden by the member on his configuration pannel if he wishes to...

Agreed - if I may, I think this could be a sensible measure to be implemented - if you go an entire year without logging in, your account gets deleted.  An e-mail can be sent with a warning to anyone that is close to getting the ax.

I was away for more than a year. So for me at least, I don't like the idea. Maybe three years?

You would get an e-mail warning when you're close to the cutoff - all you would have to do is simply log in, and the counter would be reset.  That doesn't seem too onerous a task.

I suppose so. I don't often check my emails though. But maybe as a collaborator I would be exempt anyway. By the time I came back last time I was a "Honorary"

how about putting the waiting period before the account gets deleted as 18 months?
