Spurred on by a couple of comments i've read elsewhere, and the recent discovery of a handful of people with sh1t loads of posts who i've never even heard of, is there a way of showing post count which excludes all off-topic posts?

[or do the powers of TP even have an easy-ish way of counting this - Hein/Sander, judging from the 200,000 thing, guessing this is your type of "fun"]

The only way I can think of right now to do this is by directly querying the database.

And also out of vague curiosity...I could have started a new thread, but I reply here:
Before we had the travel maps, you could see how many countries someone had visited and how many tp members had visited more countries. Is this still possible....it was kinda fun for me actually.

You can include the "my latest trips" taglet on the front page, and that'll say "you have travelled to x out of 243 countries (y%)". Don't think there's any comparison with how much other people have travelled at the moment, though.
(Also, if you have a lot of destinations in some of your trips, that my latest trips taglets can be kinda sluggish - something I need to look at, but hence not something I recommend that you keep on the frontpage permanently.)

O sh*t, sometimes I feel so digibetic....where is the 'my latest trips' taglet?

On the homepage, click on the "add content" link way at the top, and then select "My Latest Trips" from the selectbox (assuming it's not already showing).

Thanks, haven't used it before. And also there are no problems considering the fact that many of my trips have more countries/destinations. No country has been lost as far as I can tell.
By the way, can you see this from other members as well?

No, you can't.

I kind of liked that 'x members have been to more countries than me' too.... Why did you axe that Sander??? :) I'm sure Gelli will not be impressed I even coded it to say 'Congrats Gelli, you are the most travelled traveller on Travellerspoint' at one stage

Michael, maybe that comparison will make a re-entry on the member trips page ....

Let's hope so! I mean, I am not travelling for myself, but to show off only. H*ll, I hate travelling....;)
