I don't know where else to report this, but I know Faithlife staff are active here.

For the last several dozen forum posts, my post count has been stuck at 1098 and will not budge. Perhaps an index in the forum database needs to be recreated.

I have had to reset my Faithlife account before and I am not eager to do this, because I lost the list of all of my former posts and and my submission count reset to zero.

I suppose it is a vanity thing, but it would be nice if the count of posts reasonably accurately represented the number of posts a user has made.

Weird. The post count was stuck at 1098 for about 12 posts, then it suddenly jumped to 1100 when I made a single new post. Then when I made 1 more post, the count did not increase.

Something is not right in the forum software.

Posts in private forums don't count toward your public count.

That was my hypothesis. I assume that is so there is no link to posts in private forums in the public list of a user's posts on their profile.
