Struggling post count

Hi all,

I tried to post a pic (linking to photobucket) but it said I need at least 5 posts...and I currently have 0 posts.

Can't be 0 posts surely???

It's been a while so I might be wrong but I believe that posts in certain areas of the forum don't count towards your post total.

Correct, think it was stopped to stop newbies just posting "welcome" in a bazillion threads & next you know it within a few mins they have a large post count. Although I have never really understood what the problem is.

Correct. It was seen as a way to massively increase post counts.

Fair comment, I think I can see the point there...I was just a little confuzzled, for a while I saw I only had 0 posts...thought something might be up. I get confused easily, it's my old age

There was one member who used to occupy almost 2 full pages of 'welcome' posts every morning on my first run through. Since knocking the post count increase off the introduce yourself forum that has stopped.

That tells me something.

Any news about the sticker issue? Its become a bit of a joke of the forum on the Facebook group.

I've held off buying another sticker until it was sorted, but that was months ago and that thread has new comments regularly....

Hi,

I saw a couple sticker threads. Can you please point me to which one is the one where the issue with them is being discussed?

Probably best keeping it all in the main thread that is up for people to post about not receiving stickers.

Helping those who have not received their stickers is one thing, but it would be good to know what you're doing (if anything) behind the scenes to stop this reoccurring issue from happening.

It has been going on for months with no signs of it getting any better and it makes the forum look like it's run by amateurs, especially when this issue was never present with the old supplier.

With this impression going out mainly to new supporters (as the vast majority of sticker purchasers are), you'd think you'd want to give the best impression to those who may not have n impression at all, yet...

Hey there,

I do apologize for this delay, I am currently working with the mods to fix the situation, hopefully this will be implemented before the end of the week.

Thank you so much,
