was replying to someone on the forums and then realised my posts count was down by about 600

so I thought I had to much beer and I fired of an enquiry to support and here is the  reply so if your wondering what happened


 


 

Hello wsatnutter,

Thank you for contacting us regarding your issue with the number of forum posts that appear under your name.

What you have experienced here is actually completely normal and is due to the forum staff wanting to make the information in the forum more accessible and easier to navigate.

To this end, they have removed a lot of the topics that were previously placed in the archives and they will start only keeping archives for posts that are less than three months old.

A news regarding this should be posted soon, but this means that if any of your posts were in the topics that were deleted, they will have gone too, bringing your count down with them.

I hope this explains the situation and that you continue to enjoy the game and the forums as much as possible.

Best of luck in your future endeavours and on the battlefield!

If any other questions or issues arise, please don't hesitate to contact us again.

Kind regards,

Miguel Adaephon Delat
Wargaming.net Customer Service Representative

Edit - misread as down to 600, not down by 600.

 

If they do this, what happens to our ranks?  I like being a Captain!!!

so WG are now saying that even though you've posted *** times, you actually haven't cause we tie the post count the topics and not your account.

 

One would assume then that if they are limiting it to three months of active posts in a thread?

 

I have an old thread that i often refer folk to if they are having client issues - this thread may disappear and the knowlegde go to?

The game would stop being supported before the forum bar dies, or atleast, one could hope. :popcorn:

I believe they are looking at introducing premium posts, these will stay around longer, give you extra thumbs up and a bold font so thick your text will be almost impenetrable ;)

 

Edit: Extra thick bold font will only apply to posts written with Cyrillic characters.

I originally had an issue where Sand River always got stuck on the loading screen - turns out it was missing files. This checks your files and fixes them but they often change the address.
