When you go into a forum section and look at a thread, if it has 1 response it will show as 2 Replies. So for some reason the original post is counted as a reply.

Been like that for ages, always struck me as odd as well. Now how will I know the number of replies on a thread? Time to bring out Crs Forum!

If I remember correctly, it used to work the way it works now, then it was changed not to include the original post, but then people asked for it to be changed back.

People never truly know what they want, it seems.

We know exactly what we want. It just so happens to be the exact opposite of what it is right now. How hard is that to deliver?

At the very least, I think "replies" is just misleading. If it's going to display how it does now, I would personally prefer if it said "posts" or something like that, instead of "replies." Doesn't particularly matter either way, as you said, someone will be unhappy.

Well, considering it was delivered before (as I said), probably not hard.

I'd personally prefer changing "replies" to "posts" though; when it was changed to show the replies instead of the total number of posts before, it seemed to actually confuse a lot of people.

It was changed a while ago due to people complaining that it was more confusing the way you guys are suggesting. Some people prefer it this way and some people prefer it the other way. We will look into how to make it as clear as possible.
Thanks to GrandMasterD for my sig!
