    Summary: The posts count remains unaltered after deleting all the nodes and creating new nodes.

    Steps:
    1. Create nodes, child nodes (forums, categories et al.)
    2. Post test messages in few of the forums.
    3. Now, delete the all categories (top level) while choosing to include deleting the child categories/forums.
    4. Create new categories and observe the profile.

    Expected Results: With the deletion of categories/sections and messages, the posts count should be reset to zero.
    Actual Result: The post count before the deletion of categories is maintained.

    Have you tried rebuilding the caches in /admin.php?tools/rebuild ?

    Yes, I did. The only difference I notice now is -

    1. My old posts do not appear anymore in Admin (profile) -> Postings. New posts are shown.
    2. The post count is still '3', while I have only one post visible on the forums.

    It's not really feasible to change the message counts. I'm not sure if it's strictly desirable either.

    Why?

    Consider this situation -

    1. I make 100 posts in the forum. Then I delete all the nodes and create new nodes to start afresh.
    2. With the new nodes, my posts start at 101 :| -> looks weird that I've 100 posts while the actual number of posts in the forum is just 1.
