I was SO happy when I hit the 5000 post mark today... and now it has subtracted WELL OVER 30 today... What is going on?!? I feel dumb for posting this - but it meant a mile-stone to me and I keep dropping in post counts!

Yeah.... sorry about that :P We're moving to the Black Friday server cluster tomorrow night, so to prepare for that I deleted a bunch of old threads. These were primarily old/expired deals, contests, freebies, surveys, etc... that were at least a year old. This helped make the database a little smaller, which means less downtime tomorrow night and in December when we move back, and it should have a slight overall improvement as far as the performance of the site. So that explains your (and many others) drop in post count. I only do this once per year, so when you hit 5,000 again, it should stick :)

Thanks for the heads up, Brad. And for the heart attack! I seriously thought I'd done somethin' wrong when I had about a hundred less posts than I did the other day. :eek: G'luck with the server move tomorrow! :yup:

Glad to know it wasn't JUST me. :) Working HARD to hit that 5000 mark again soon. ;)

Am I the only one that never has any idea of how many posts she has? A hundred less or a thousand less, I'd never notice.

same here Rockfordmom- I just don't pay too much attention anymore. I used to really worry about it, but after a few of the cuts, I decided that it was just a number!

I don't look at my post count either, especially since the system doesn't count the posts in the Men Only private forum.

Bumping this thread before someone posts a new one. Like we do every year, we've been deleting a lot of older threads (expired contests, expired freebies, dead deals, etc...) to make the forum DB a little smaller for tonight's move to the Black Friday servers, so if you see your post count and various forums' total posts go down, DON'T PANIC!!!! :P
