Forum Glitches?

It's possible (or probable) I've gone totally mad, but I'm almost certain my post count has dropped by about 20 posts today.
Not only that, but when I today reported two spam threads, which in my understanding is done by e-mail, I saw my post count rise by a corresponding number!
How very odd.

You get a second chance to do your 2000th post.

Maybe a mod deleted an old thread which had your posts?

If reporting posts counts as a post for me, then those posts I reported were deleted, that would explain it, I guess.
I've never noticed the phenomenon before, though.

Observant wights don't miss a trick!

In fact, since we set up the infraction system that lets us easily ban spammers, the forum has been set to automatically generate both Reported Post and Infraction Notification threads in the moderator's forum. It's been over two years, I think, so consequently we had a few hundred threads junking up the forum. In recent months, spammers have become such a nuisance that normal threads are quickly buried under these automatic threads.

When I realized yesterday that I had missed a couple of threads that could have used my attention because of this, I did indeed go and do a mass deletion. I did some rebuilding of stats, but I didn't realize that it would affect post counts. Sorry about the reduction, but consider it a badge of honor for being such a sharp-eyed spam-hunter.

Thanks for the clarification, Mister U. And spambot hunting is a fun pastime.

Has anyone else found the Calendar to be stuck on Dec. 2012? It simply won't advance from that for me.

For the last couple hours I've been redirected to a white-and-blue themed search site with various suggested LOTR search terms when I tried to get to this site. I have no idea what that was, but it was somewhat amusing. Did anyone else witness that teleportation?

Downers on Facebook contacted the Barrow Wight about the problem and Mithadan was able to find out how to correct the domain issue, which the BW promptly did.

Voila, the Downs is back in town. Is there an elvish word for voila?
