    Well were they good posts? or did you just make a bunch of "hey great thread', 'thanks for the good info', and similar comments to get your post count up?

    You just joined here a week ago. If you just made a bunch of useless posts to get your post count up then that would explain it.

    ok thank you Greywolf

    Some posts were in Buy/Sell confirm section ton confirm my orders.
    Others were similar to 'thanks for the good info' but in these threds, thousands are like mines.

    I'm new here and my posts helped me to find the thread interesting me in my statistics section, in fact it's a big forum so It's hard to find my way between the section :)

    Thank you again, I understand now

    Well the posts in the BST don't increase your post count anyway. And your right you do see a lot of 'thanks for the good info' type posts. Those aren't allowed either, it's just there are so many that unless something draws attention to them they just kinda slip by.

    You probably made a post somewhere that draw some attention to it (especially if you made a useless post in a BST thread) and got the mods to take a look at all your posts. Once that happened all the posts were deleted and you have to start over.

    You can solve your post count issue by just making useful posts in the forums that increase your post count. Ask real questions, or make useful observations that actually contribute something to the threads that interest you.

    To solve the 'keeping track of interesting threads' issue there's no need to post in the thread, just use the 'thread tools' link at the top of every thread. Just select 'subscribe to thread' and then later when you want to read them again you can find those subscribed threads in your userCP.

    Remember there's usually no need to make a post thanking someone unless you're including something that actually contributes more to the thread. If you got something really useful from a post or even just liked what you read enough that you'd like to thank the poster, just use the 'thanks' button on that post. The person making the post will actually appreciate that even more than if you post a comment.

    (Also you might read this thread so you can avoid another common mistake regarding the thanks button.

    Good luck.
