Is this possible? I'd like to hide a few forums and not count their post/thread count towards users or most important, board total stats.

Yes, under node options

Count messages posted in this forum toward user total
If disabled, messages posted (directly) in this forum will not contribute towards the posting user's total messages count.

For forums, deselect "Count messages posted in this forum toward user total" in the options of each forum that you don't want to count posts. For the forum stats, that would require a resource, most likely.


+1 and watching this. I created a moderators' forum, but the post discrepancy is apparent because the forum is only a few days old
