I see the terms used interchangeably here. I read somwhere that they're the same thing, but that doesn't make sense bc my # of posts & # of messages are different.

Hi,
I assume you're referring to the Message count shown, vs the Postings tab on your profile.

Messages are posts to the forum that are included in the count.
Postings includes all activity on the site, forum posts, profile messages, articles etc.

In your case, at the time of writing, you have
53 Postings, and a message count of 48.
Posts to the "Welcome to Fishlore" and "Games" forums don't get included in your message count.

So you have:
53 Total Postings
less 4 Posts to the Welcome forum
less 1 profile post
equals 48 Messages

Hope that makes sense.

That makes perfect sense. Thank you!
