Not that this is a big deal ... but it seems that post counts don't increase as new posts are added ... see this thread Posts per day ... my "count" remains at 5145 ... and I've noticed the same for other posters ... I don't care that much, but others will. :|
It works. The value is retrieved from a server side database and displayed when the thread (no matter how old it is) is generated. Same with sigs - If you change your sig, all older threads with your posts in will display your new sig.
Some of the data (post count / Sigs) are added from a database when the thread is being displayed - instead of being saved as part of that post like in the old forum.
Personally, I prefer the old way - I love seeing some of my old sigs.
That is correct. In the old forum (TOF) sigs and post counts were added to the post and were not changeable. In the new forumz, if you change sig or post count changes, everything will refresh dynamically (in other words, such things are added at 'display time' not at 'post time').
