I've configured our board so that new members have to have four posts approved before they can post without moderation. This was done to catch spammers before they post to the board. Recently a possible bug was discovered.
We sometimes have new users who will post the same thing several times. They obviously haven't read the terms (not unusual), so when their post doesn't show up, they post it again. We recently had a new member who did that three times. Our moderators will generally handle this by approving the first post and deleting the other two. However, when checking the member's account, it lists 3 posts, not one, even though two were deleted.
ISTM the post count is set when a post is made (before it's approved) and not unset if the post is later deleted. This would mean that the post count doesn't accurately reflect the members' actual post counts. Shouldn't post count be decremented with each post deletion?
All our system details are in my signature.
