Thread: New posts but numbers don't rise

    New posts but numbers don't rise

    I've noticed that some post numerous times but the number of posts they posted doesn't rise under their names. Why is that? Thanks.

    Because whenever a page is generated, it always fills in the user's current highest post count. It's not historical.

    (Just like you always see the user's current avatar and sig, not the one they might have had when the post was originally made.)

    I can't find the post where I asked a similar question previously, but I remember the answer is that the system updates counts at timed intervals rather than immediately. So someone's post count may not reflect her most recent post right away.
