    can we have the post time stamp & date in black instead of the gray to make it easier to see as i'm going thru the forums?

    I made the timestamp underneath the last poster nickname 30% darker. Is that better?

    We didn't import news comments to the new forum, and some closed or single-post threads were also excluded.

    You can check your post count at http://login.afterdawn.com/settings/ Mine shows around 400 more for the old forums.

    approximately 2000 less then this not including total posts.
    "You have posted 39939 messages to our discussion forums since you created your account on Friday 15 October 2004.
    The total number of all messages you have posted is 60643. This includes posts that do not count towards member level updates."

    So those missing ones would probably be news comments mostly. And the 20k are probably in safety valve. That's quite a few! Does excluding them from the total post count still make sense?

    What about replies to old reports, that section for mods is gone and so are thousands of report threads aswell
    As we all can guess, ddp has more handled reports than anyone else.. My personal count in old settings page is 9684 and now 5033 and i've never been active in safety valve, less than 50 posts probably..

    Ah, that's true. Reports were probably also counted. Not 100% sure about this though. @dRD ?

    News comments were counted, reports were counted and also replies to reports were counted. Now that all those have vanished, post count is bit closer to truth now.

    Im sure, theres no other reason why i would have such a lot messages.. When fin forums migrated to xenforo, it said 4600msgs for me, when eng forums were also migrated it bumped to 5000. 400 public messages is reasonable amount for me @ eng side.. Rest 4000 messages must be reports, I used to be active on both sides, clearing a lots of spam here aswell.. And tho replying "banned & hid" quite a few times:)

    Edit: dRD was faster..

    is there some new feature that forum posts have to be approved by moderators or did i get flagged for something?

    ^^I have seen that implemented on other forums but repeated and often useless posts on others still get through more often then they should.

    I'd guess the post was to Nintendo DS forum? That forum is currently under pre-moderation. It has quite actively been spammed by non-bot users posting from a single IP address promoting various cartridge selling sites. At times it's difficult differentiating between genuine posts and advertising.

    The archived forums aren't locked - the option to create threads exists (haven't checked all of them).
