Hi forum technicians, Terry, Moderators etc.
I just like to know, whether 'Alerting moderators' count as a post. As the post count does not getting updated as soon as we do it or we reply for a thread, it's kind of hard to know for myself. That's why I'm asking form you guys.
Please 'Mark as Answer' if this post helps you.

I'm not an administrator, but 'Alerting moderators' does not count towards your normal post count.

I don't believe alerting the moderators counts as a post. But we do appreciate the userbase alerting us to problems, duplicate posts, etc.

Thank you, both of you. You know what? I'm really glad that it does not count as a post! LOL
I don't know. For some strangre reason, I like to keep my post count low.
But we do appreciate the userbase alerting us to problems, duplicate posts, etc.
Of course we are aware of that. It doesn't matter whether it counts as a post or not, I'll continue reporting when I see something inappropriate.

When you submit an alert using the alert moderators link, you are ultimately creating a new thread in a reporting area of the site. Your post count will increase by 1 when that alert thread is created. You might not see your post count number go up by
1 immediately upon submitting the alert, but after creating a test alert, i did confirm that the count does go up.

test section in this forum
That's a different forum. The report test that Mike points to is a legitimate alert via the tooling, not a regular post in the Testing forum.

Aha. I see.... Kind of a moderator thing?
