    Sorry for the downtime.

    I had to edit the config file and saved it using Notepad. Bad move, it corrupted it. I had to get a new copy of Vbulletin and edit it using Notepad ++ and upload it.

    Unfortunately with stuff like this which I rarely do (every couple of years) you forget mistakes from the past

    I was just posting a comment and was pressing Post Quick Reply and I got this page wanting me to 'Config my Profile' or some damn thing and it was GONE, like REALLY GONE..........
    Not a clue in Hades as to what was going on, I even shut down the computer thinking it was having a 'bad Hair day' but to no avail.
    I imposed myself onto a Senior member/Admin and he advised me of the problem as posted above......
    I stand unequivicably behind everything I say , I just dont ever remember saying it !!

    I have run a number of maintenance measures today to correct post/threads/user profiles etc as the forum claimed I only had 47 posts. You may notice a difference in some numbers in your own stats as the forum corrects numbers.

    That's due to the "guest" issue, mate.

    Every time that happens your post count gets reset to zero.

    I hadn't noticed the post count as I rarely look at it, interesting to know . Oh well, I only need to run the one to fix that if it happens, the rest haven't been run for quite a while so it was well overdue.

    I also turned on the extended stats box at the bottom of the forum, I cant remember why it was off. Oh well, I will find out if there was an issue
