    I don't know what happened but I took some time off from the forum and went to post a few replies and was told I was spamming?

    I then looked at my post count and it was down to 5???!

    Did you guys lose some posts or something? I only post when I have something important to contribute but I know I had more than 5 posts.

    Oh well, can you at least take me off probation... I've been a member since 2008...

    Thanks,
    Rush

    What's the deal? I made a few posts and I'm still stuck at 6. Please tell me what the heck is going on here.

    If you look at my history you'll see I've made over 40 posts!

    This is frustrating because I have a JV inquiry for serious members. I want to
    combine my telemarketing call center with potential online marketing programs. I AM LOOKING FOR SERIOUS PROPOSALS!

    You've actually made a lot more posts than show in your post count. Some of the forums have been changed so as not to count toward your post count. It looks like a lot of your posts were in the Downloads section which is one of the ones that don't count.

    The Downloads, Lounge, Suggestions, Shitlist forums don't add to your post count. There's a few others as well but I can't think of them off the top of my head and I don't feel like searching for it right now. Do a search for 'post count' or some similar terms and you'll probably find some other threads explaining specifically which ones don't count. I think if you look in the forum rules they're listed there too in the section talking about post count inflation.

    I don't think there's anything the mods can even do to remove the restrictions. You'll just need to make some new posts in the forums that do count. That would basically be any of the main marketing, seo and making money forums. (except for downloads)

    Just find some threads talking about things you know and add some input, or things you're wanting to learn about and ask some questions. Do that and you'll find you have plenty of posts that count in very little time. Just try to make some decent posts though, junk posts just to inflate your post count can get you infractions or even banned.

    Hope that helps.
