XF 1.2 Separate Post Count

I'm trying to create essentially a second Custom User Field or something like it to track Posts in a separate forum.

Let me explain:
Node A
Node B
Node C

Node A&B add to the user's post counts, however Node C does not. What I want to do is have a thing under it saying "Node C Post Count" and have it display the user's posts in that forum.

Is this possible?

I'd imagine I'd have to add a column to xf_user secondary_count, is it possible or would it require an addon to have that value updated/pulled.

You will need an add-on, this is not possible in the default software. However, it should be relatively simple to accomplish if you so choose.
