I thought that ‘posts’ was a count of ‘threads opened by’ and ‘replies’ was a count of ‘answers to existing threads’.

I thought that ‘posts’ was a count of ‘threads opened by’ and ‘replies’ was a count of ‘answers to existing threads’.

I’m really not sure, I have a feeling the number may be all submissions including replies to one’s own posts , and thus should be called posts? But I’m shooting from the hip here...

What if we just keep an eye on a new member’s tallies to see what happens?

For example, this member’s made ‘1 topic’ and ‘0 replies’ so far, if nothing else, we can safely say the opening post of their own topic isn’t counted as a ‘reply.’
