I am just sitting here noticing that while I am browsing through CGtalk my post count is dropping. One second its 400, then its 388, then its 384, now its 378. This happened before about two weeks ago, and I thought that was the end of it. Is this just cgtalk cleaning out the archives of threads? Do you lose your post count if the thread you posted it on is deleted?

Yup :)

Yes, unfortunately.

We also have server overloads every now and then when sometimes sadly result in a loss of posts :sad:

on the plus side cgtalk is really zippy now that we don't have avatars :thumbsup: maybe they shouldn't come back?

We're currently working on the issue. There has been a serious flux in the processing times on the server. And with a very huge Database, it's making it very cumbersome in the backend...

Please bare with us..

Thx
