Default Posts in the offtopic section no longer count towards postcount

As the title says, posts made in the Off Topic section (and the Off Topic subforums) no longer count towards the post count.

Some of you may have noticed a drop in your post count, this is why.

Not really, it's just a minor detail. Post count doesn't real mean much IMHO.

There were numerous users post whoring in the offtopic section to boost their post count. The offtopic section was always meant to be a supplement to the Ranger discussion, not to be a quick way to pad your post count.

Never even paid attention to post counts. Where do you find that information?

Duh! Never mind
