What is your *REAL* post count?

Postby Vytron » Wed Oct 24, 2012 11:05 pm UTC

In This Thread, you tell us what would be your post count if your posts on Forum Games increased your post count.

The way to calculate them is to search for all your posts in the Forum Games section, see how many matches you get, add your actual post count, and add 1 (for the message you're posting to tell us.)

Alternatively, just copy this link:

http://forums.xkcd.com/search.php?keywords=&author=***&fid[]=14

Change the *** for your username (changing spaces for + signs), and submit, it'll tell you how many posts you have uncounted, just add them to your post count, and add 1.

Or just go in your profile and click "Search user’s posts", and add 1.

As for me:

Counted posts: +13
Uncounted posts: +125
This post I'm making: +1
-----------------------------
*REAL* post count = 139

The way Vytron recommends you find your post count is dumb. All you have to do is go to your profile page and click "search user's posts". So for instance, I can easily see that despite my "total posts" being "9", I really have 5,739 posts.

Oops, wait, I forgot to add in my old account. I guess I actually have 9,335 posts

253 including this one.

112 of them are real.

Thanks thecamoninja, I have added your way into the OP, though, your way doesn't tell us how many uncounted posts you have (at least, it's not evident how many uncounted posts you had in your old account), but other people can just do (posts in there - total posts) to add that info.

I have added that requirement so the game is less trivial :)

Counted posts: +13
Uncounted posts: +126

*REAL* post count = 140

EDIT - Nevermind, thread turned back to original, because, there's nothing wrong with trivial games, I guess :mrgreen:
