They used to let posts about post counts count, but it caused a warp in the space-time continuum and so they stuffed the Office Party threads in there to prevent the whole universe from leaking out.

Wait till a mod moves a thread from a writing forum to the Office Party. Your post count drops back down, right before your disbelieving eyes. Screaming doesn't help.

Space-time continuum warps are a bitch, but they're great plot stuff. Besides, my MC wouldn't exist without one, :hooray:

But, on the other hand, if I were to move an Office Party thread into the writing forum... Bingo! :)

(I accept significant and appropriate bribes.)

Call me a buzzkill, but posts in other forums, say the Writing Novels forum, do tend to add up. Contribute often and your post count will skyrocket.

Uh, yeah....doesn't everybody say "byoot?" You know, like the Byooty and Beast, only without the "-y and the beast" parts. Um, right? Everybody says that ...don't they?

this is news to my ears.
Always thought that the only posts that didn't count were ones in your own thread.
Not sure how I came to that conclusion.
Time for some reflection...

Your posts in Office Party and Take it Outside don't count toward your total, but they do indeed count in another, more important way: No matter what you say, your voice is being heard by countless people, your thoughts shared among a vast community that cares to listen. That's something numbers don't account for.

....and to repeat, and copy, and link to, and maybe even take out of context, twist, distort, or even just remind you long after you've changed your mind or eaten those words, or at least wished you coulda....
