So while in Forum Games the past few of days..I noticed that a recently joined (in the Forum Games sectoin..not AG in general) has been posting quite a lot (not spam). Now, this isn't the problem..no, the problem is like how it says in the title.

Thkis user (ArgamenPhish) came in with about 150-ish post counts (a few days ago)..and posts primarily in the Forum Games (has posted in other sections every now and then..but not enough for a significant rise). This user now has 472 posts. But like I said..hasn't posted much of anything outside of the Forum Games section

I asked Argamen if he posted anywhere else besides the Forum Games section (I go to each section...so I was doubting that I'd miss his posting in other sections frequently, but I just wanted to make sure)
Response: I almost solely post in forum games except a haiku entry and an armatar entry. I just post a lot and on everything. Not spam just a lot.

I posted three times in Forum games during the weekend. My post count increased and it still hasn't decreased after two days. However, I've noticed just a few minutes ago that I haven't earned any AP for those three posts.

After checking again, my forum post count has not decreased. However, kegaumongo's post piqued my curiosity, so I checked my numbers. Turns out I have MORE points than I should based on the numbers of games rated etc that I have there. I'm about 30 points higher, which sounds like about how many FG posts I've done since this problem came up. The weird thing is that the post count also rises. It might be possible that non-AP forum posts are giving out 2 AP, rather than just one, but it's just speculation.

AP hasn't been adding up properly in a while. I don't know if here's a correlation, but who can say?

The last AP add-up problem I know of is the glitch where AP wasn't updating properly, which was fixed a while ago. This thread mentions either a new glitch or a hidden feature. The admins have not notified on this issue yet.

So, I'm not sure why this happened. I am sure that I can fix it. I'm going to keep it this way for a while, then we'll determine if it will stay this way. Both of these forums give AP now, enjoy.

Will the posts made while they were non-AP show up? Or will it only reward posts from now on?

It didn't make much sense to have the Newcomers section a non-AP forum, but why give AP to the Forum Games section? Forum Games tend to get spammy relative to the rest of the forums.

They don't seem that different from the others. Continuous games in forum games are easier to post than most other threads, but they still require for you not to spam. I don't think spam will be an issue here. All parts of the community should be treated equally.

Considering a number or two is sufficient for the "rate the above user" threads, either the spam detectors will have to up their game with stricter rules, or the AP should be taken away. I mean, the parts of the community should be treated equally, but it seems like it can be abused easily.

You mean full length posts, right? Technically, they would still be posts even I they were a single letter long. :P

It is openly frowned upon when that happens. Normally a reason is given for the rate.

And those would be deleted on sight... can't have those 'count to...' or 'alphabet-like' games happening. Users conducting those threads will be dealt with like they always have been. *polishes hammer* =)
