Is it really "incorrect"? I also lost about half of my post count, but discovered in the past, that with every new post the counter was increased by two.
Now the "wrong" counting seems to be corrected.
If I search for my old posts, I practically get them all back until that date, I registered here at ppcwrz.
Yes, I should be at like 1400+ now and am still not even at 900. My count only went up once by posting this reply.
I think the point Monkey is making is that if I click your profile, and I click 'Search users posts' I get this in return:Search found 855 matches
Your post count shows 859 however, which means 4 of the posts you have made since I resync the database have been lost through attrition which is generally by purging of forums. Since I resynced the DB about 3 days ago, you're 4 posts up, you can imaging what the difference would be over 2-3 years.
A long time in the past, about late 2007ish there was also an error where post counts were going up by 2, which monkey remembers. I fixed the error when we migrated to phpBB3.
The post counts are not going to be changed, so this is the end of discussion. The resync had to be completed, or the forum would be out of sync just to save user post counts which would lead to other errors, which I would then have to resync the DB to fix.
