i've been thinking about this for a while. i post many times on ug and then i go and see my post count and it's much lower than it was before. does this mean my posts count as spam?
No, posts in the Pit and Newbie forums don't count towards your post count, although they do appear to boost it briefly.
Posts in the pit don't count.
I dunno about losing posts. But posts in The Pit don't count towards your post count. Although mine keeps going up, and I haven't posted outside The Pit in ages...
oh no wonder, ok thanks.
