It has to do with deleted posts. Butch is the admin, so he sees the deleted posts and everything is fine for him. For us, the deleted posts don't show and the forum software is not supposed to count them on the pages we see. But something is buggered with the forum software and one part of it is trying to count deleted posts.
Or maybe it's due to posts by someone that Butch has sent to Coventry, they aren't seen but the software is trying to count them.
I just seem to have a knack for figuring out how some stuff works. I simply work backwards from the problem and figure out what could affect it. Not much different that figuring out why your saw isn't running right. Carl and Willie both have it, and I'm sure several others here as well.
