For any of the mods that may be concerned with an arguably trivial calculation error: I have been doing a little project concerning the Headless Chicken tavern in the Off-Topic Forum. After manually compiling a record of every post in the thread I have found a small error in the post counter that is displayed for the forum, which is behind by 2. I have checked and rechecked my data and have confirmed my data to be correct. Though this is an error percentage of a mere 0.0004%, I just thought maybe one of you was as anal as i am.

If this is something you would wish to look into further, I can further explain in more detail how I know my data is the correct data, and present it to you. Thanks :)

(PS: before anyone asks, yes I apparently have no life)

Additionally, I have just found that the Board statistics also shows a different number of 4,987 posts, while the post counter on the thread shows 4,992, and true data is 4,994

I believe the board statistics post counts may be updated daily or at another interval and not precisely up to date... :)

Ahh, makes sense for that part. I still believe there is a calculation error for the thread counter itself that is not based of updating lag as supported by my data
