Yip, it looks like Management has but in new Duracell batteries for Pacman. Fortunately most of mine survived (I think it because I only talk sense :whistle: :twisted: )

Not really fussed.
I haven't been around all that much recently, but I have noticed my post count has dropped significantly. I am fairly sure it was around 400+.
Does this mean that posts of mine have been deleted?

Hi Yoda,

Every so often we mods do a bit of housekeeping and tidying up, old posts and off topic posts mainly and comments from old trip reports. They get moved and deleted. Then once a year the technical peeps "tidy up" the forum by re-indexing and resetting all the post counts. It helps reduce the size of the database and speeds things up a bit.

Please be assured that nothing important has been deleted. We have had a long conversation about it here. Have a read and if it's still not clear let us know and we'll try and explain better.
Want to say Thank You or Well Done to a fellow 'mite? Why not nominate them for a Kudu?

Saraf,
Ah, that makes sense. As i say, i am not too bothered, but just wondered what had happened.
