Default Help me with the forum

Hi,
I'm finding the forums a bit confusing, any help for me?
1. It says I only have 25 posts in non-inn, images, suggestions, and the other not-so-serious topics. But I've definitely posted more than that. I sit the number of topics I've started? Because that means that DkySven would have started 2350+ topics O.o

2. It says the person is banned, but he's posting on the forums. How does this work?

3. Does +1 mean you like the post? Or that you gave the person +1 reputation?

4. I thought swear words were banned on the forums? I have seen people use them a lot on threads. Sometimes I feel like using them but I don't know if I should or not (priority is to not get banned, whatever that means)

5. I've set my time to 9:35 P.M., but my user profile says it's 9:35 A.M. where I am and my posts also say 9:35 A.M. I've tried changing it multiple times with no effect.

I have been playing for 3+ years already and been on the forums quite a while, just never got the courage to reveal my noobishness

The post counter only raises when you post something in threads that are not located in The Inn, Images, Suggestions and Complaint Book.
Anyway, if you post something in, for example, General Discussion, and the thread where you participated gets moved or deleted, all those posts you've previously written will be deleted from your total amount.

Maybe you've seen posts from users that are banned, because when someone gets banned the system does not auto-delete their posts. This means that these posts were written by that person before he/she got banned.

Maybe. This basically depends on the person posting; since most of the times posting just a "+1" means that he/she is agreeing with the original poster, or with the one he/she quoted.
You should look at it as a facebook's "like".

Swearing and insulting may get someone banned, yes. But that depends on the "tone" of the post, and of course if it's insulting towards another member of the community.

Always feel free to report this kind of behaviour.

Try setting your time by going to User CP -> Edit Options -> Date & Time Options.

Thanks. No wonder when I came back after 1 year I had fewer posts than when I was playing before.
