Some time ago I remembered it used to show my post count, posts per day, then the “most active forum” and how many of my posts were in that particular forum.

Upon revisiting my own profile for the first time in a long time I was puzzled to find that this feature was gone. Ofdly enough, however, it still showed on some other profiles of other members.

I asked the mods, other members, and even in the facebook page but no one seemed to be able to help me out. So, I kind of dropped the issue.

Yesterday, however, I made another doscovery that might be the answer to my question so I thought I would post it here just in case anyone else ever cared to asl the same question I did.

What I noticed is that all the top posters don’t have the “most active forum” displayed on their profile. So I got to looking. Everyone that has under 5000 posts HAS it displayed on their profile. While everyone with 5k or above does NOT.

I still don’t know WHY that is the case but I noticed that it is in fact the case. I would like to know why, though. So, if anyone who knows ever happens to read this... and if there is a way to make it display on profiles that have over 5,000 posts... please let me know. I really would like to find out.

Thanks, and this ends my most likely pointless post of info and further inquiry.

*waves*

It's likely a limitation/bug in the forum software where the algorithm defaults to 'nil' once 5000 posts are reached. That is my guess anyway.

That would make sense. *shrugs* Another addition to my wishlist on a (Never-gonna-happen) forum upgrade. Lol
