I have noticed that in my profile as well. I just chalked it up to a delay in the tracking system, I havnt taken the time to actually check to see if it updates automatically when I author a thread or if there actually is a delay.

Perhaps I will find something worthwhile enough to start a new thread tonight so I can test my hypothesis.
Probably not though

It will also go up if you use the alert feature..

One alert = One new thread...

I think it's because when you do an "alert", it opens a thread in the Mod's private bunker of threads that we peons never get to see.

I'll bet that forum is funny as hell though....

Yup, alerts do generate threads that are visible to staff only.

Any time the complaint or alert feature is used it counts as a post/thread creation.

lol, nice one..

But hey, that means we can physically check how many times someone uses the Alert feature by counting actual threads started and number shown in count..

Though do I really care who is the biggest stoolie on ATS.??
