1337 posts shows up as "leet"
« on: January 04, 2010, 06:14:15 PM »

When my post count was 1337 it said "leet" instead of the number. (1336 and 1338 are OK)

That's interesting.  I think it has something to do with the forum software, but I'm not one to know about that.

Someone moderate mightyace's count back down to 1337 and see what happens.

Yep.  This is a built in Easter Egg by the SMF people.

This feature is eliminated in the newer 2.0 version of SMF, but is readdable by installing a mod that you can download from SMF's website.

Whose idea was it to use the SMF forum client though? Huh?

I had the leet thing happen with my post count at one point too. I made another post and it reverted back to numbers. Figured it was a quirk with the software...

I added back four, as you were at 1341 when I lowered you.  Unless you did something in the interim, you are accurate again.

Did you remember to count the post above yours as well?

probably.  he was at 1338, so I added back the four that I subtracted previously.  Unless he posted while I was doing the update (which appears not to be the case), he is fine.

LOL, I'm actually surprised someone in this day and age still didn't know what 'leet' meant.
