Thank you for understanding, theladyeri! We've had some troubles in the past with people signing up just to dilute the data in the reviews system. We know it's irritating for some of our newer users, so please bear with us. I'm sure you'll find yourself able to post in no time!
As for the RP post count issue, it looks like there has been some confusion due to a minor error in how posts are tallied. The main RP and OOC sub-forums don't actually count toward your total, but the New RPGs sub-forum was not inheriting the settings from the parent forum, so those posts were counting. We updated the back-end yesterday and recalculated the post counts to take this into account, so things should be the way everyone expects them now.
