Posts in the woodman don't count towards your total. I believe all other boards count. But deliberately posting to increase your count will get your posts removed.

Not that you'd do that, Glyn  ;)

Thought it was anything in the off-topic boards that don't count if I remember correctly

Who's got the most posts on the board? I think Oldbury. Surely Devon is in top 3.

I noticed some pretty big threads like the Pulis one has been moved to general sports now (off topic) which aren't counted in post counts. Imagine this being moved has reduced quite a few people's pists. The same happened before with the berahino one

That's nonsense. All posts should count towards the total.

Posts in some sections do not count to total due to the amount of crap that gets posted in those topics ie transfer board, chants board, off topic boards. This is a West Bromwich Albion forum and we prefer people to discuss the club so posts there count.

Why should someone have 1000's of posts just updating scores, posts making chants up or filling the transfer board with random bilge from twitter or other stuff from websites made up by a kid sitting in his bedroom ?

You can call it nonsense thats up to you but it won't be changing.

The Berahino one was moved to general football as he no longer plays for us and so any posts now are not Albion related.

The Pulis one was moved for the same reason, maybe a bit prematurely but as he is no longer in charge his future is not Albion related

I see what you are saying but surely posts on Pulis should not be removed from the total though as that was an Albion discussion. Or maybe posts on General Football can start counting towards the total. Just a thought.

Does it really matter?
It doesn't matter how many resources you have.
If you don't know how to use them, they will never be enough.
