What posts don't count toward total?

I know that response time posts don't count toward your total, but are there other posts that don't count?  I've been "stuck" at 38 for a while now.  I have 73 posts (I counted!) and only 13 of them are response time posts.  

I want to be able to send PMs!  :D

I believe other stuff doesn't count. (Someone please correct me if I am wrong.)

Yeah, I found that, but it still doesn't really define what counts and what doesn't.  For instance, I've made several posts about tweet chats for writers on the "Other Stuff" board.  I would have thought those were "contributing posts"... unless nothing on the "Other Stuff" board counts.  Lots of threads there are writing-related.

OK, I just counted, and I have 22 posts on the "Off Topic" boards, plus 13 response time posts. I now (prior to this post) have 74 altogether, and 39 of them "count."  22+13+39=74, so I guess that explains it.

Guess I need to do some more posting on the other boards!

ETA: Just to clarify, I'm not complaining; just trying to figure things out.

I moved your most recent twitter discussion to another area.

Other Stuff is for things that are not writing or illustrating related, therefore that entire board does not count towards total posts. You figured it out. I'm impressed! (And here I thought I'd disguised it so well...Just to confuse everyone. :ghost :dr)
