This is an automotive forum first and foremost so posting in the actual auto sub-forums has merit.
They changed it in the last year or two after I brought it up.

Rep points are 1.5 in the car section and 1.0 in the off topic.

Posts in forum operations (here) do not add to post count, iirc.

I agree with you. It’s a car forum. Off topic should be worth no rep points...or disabled in off topic completely. But page views is what sells advertising I guess.

And yes, if an argument/flamewar breaks out on a thread that you posted on and the mods delete the thread, all those post counts disappear.
