Yes, you're correct that the Journals don't add to the number of posts you have. Other areas and some forums (like the introduce yourself forum) also don't add to your total.
I'll looked at your journals and you should be given more credit for your posts there, so I've upped your post count now, so you should be a full member by tomorrow.
Thanks for pointing this out. If others have the same problem, PM me and I'll help you out.

Because of that, things tend to add up slowly for me here, and on any forum i'm part of.
I'll let the reader decide if post count matters or not. All i'm sayin is - should posting in one place count and the other not ?
