Hi there,

Looking at the forum categories (https://www.gamingonlinux.com/forum/categories) I can see 38 posts for "Virtual Reality / Augmented Reality", but when navigating into it (https://www.gamingonlinux.com/forum/vr-ar-xr) I'm seeing just two. Where are the others? ;)

I stumbled across this because I had bookmarked 4 of those posts, but now two bookmarks are "empty".

Kind regards.

Hi, the post counter includes both topics and replies however it might not add up correctly if there's a bug in our re-counting when someone removes a post.

Funnily enough, our system doesn't note the title of forum posts deleted, so I just upgraded to do so. Should make moderation a bit easier to keep tabs on what goes on. From what I can see, in the last few days a user did remove their account and a different user deleted multiple forum topics of their own and I'm sure their topics were in the VR forum anyway from who they are - so not a bug it seems.

Ah, I completely forget that posts can be deleted by users and that posts will be deleted once a users closes its account :). Seeing that post counter (where posts and replies together didn't match) send me in the wrong direction.

Thanks for the explanation!
