Okie, I know Steven is planning to do another 'clear out' to speed up the forums; but not sure if he did do this before he went on leave on not. We will have to wait to hear from him when he returns.

Promise we did not just delete your posts :whistle:

Look , I am a little on the slow side when it comes to modern technology :whistle:

According to Steve :
1. Resynchronise statistics - Recalculates the total number of posts, topics, users and files.
2. Resynchronise post counts - Only existing posts will be taken into consideration. Pruned posts will not be counted.

Not sure what this means : recalculate - so you get a different answer every time you count :hmz:
: Only existing posts will count - so old posts do not count :hmz: How old must they be :hmz:
: pruned posts :hmz: What are pruned posts ? And who " prunes" it ?

It seems if you post , then it may be " pruned " , and not counted .
If it is not pruned , it will be recalculated .
If you do NOT post , it will in any event be either recalculated , or it may be pruned .

Mindboggling :doh:
