Is something going on wrong? Last night I had 1666 posts when I went to bed and now I have only 1655 as of this one. I even screenshoted having 1666 posts as proof.

Why did my post count dropped 11 posts?? Is something going wrong or PC having problems? I didn't even delete any posts. I think some kind of error happened. Help!

Perhaps a thread was deleted that contained some of your posts? This kinda stuff happens I suppose, my post count went down by about 15 once too, didn't think much of it :/

Perhaps check your profile "view all posts option" and try to see if you can remember any that are missing?

Yeah, at times when a post count diminishes by a few it'd be because a thread that you posted in got deleted. Not much to worry about, and there's no other reason for a post count to decrease besides a post being deleted. (Or a section having post count turned off, but that hasn't happened to my knowledge of late).

Alternatively, a thread could have been moved into a section where postcount is turned off. Check the Wandering Thread and the like.

Either that or they are moved into a thread that members cannot see, like archives or they are merged into one pst. That could be it--but since everyone answered...I'm going with Went-sama's answer.

Looking through some posts of mine, that might be the case. I notice the thread for the Unova United event is gone now and I made a few post in there so there's one thing. Plus a few others seem to be gone too.

I remember one I posted a few times in the Wandering Thread when it was moved to Celebrations. Is post count turned off there? I don't know if it was moved anywhere else in that time except for X and Y and GE.

That would make sense too. I'd think some of the recent events thread would just of been moved to the archives or other inactive threads could of been closed?
