I'm trying to increase my score by making forum posts. I've made about 5 posts in the forums that have been longer than a sentence and I don't understand why I haven't gotten counted for these. It's not the length because I've made posts this identical length and gotten counted. What's going on?

Off-topic and very short posts are not counted. Refresh the score to have your new posts count.

After today's update, my posts are being counted for my score but on the popularity points for today's BOTD it says I have no forum posts therefore I can't get the extra entry. Also for some reason I am unable to comment on the review. :?

It says the same thing for me with the bonus entry points but I was able to post a comment on the review. Did you see the "post reply" button?

A glitch due to the changes. My post count for BOTD also shows 0.

This was fixed last week. Sorry for this glitch and any others during the transition.

System still might be broken. My breakdown shows 2.2 out of 10 points Eligible post count on forums: 44 posts.
That was just after I rechecked my score. I currently have 63 posts. Out of 44 eligible posts only 2.2 of them count? Regardless of how the system works, it was off by almost 20 posts. Thought you might want to know that system may still not be fixed.
