The Dream Count is the total count of "Things" (sometimes called Content) posted by any given Dreamer on EcchiDreams. Even reviews and comments, images in albums, topics, posts, articles, status messages, and so on are all counted. EcchiText and EcchiChat conversations are not counted towards the Dream Count of any given Dreamer.
Some counts may appear to be artificially inflated; this is not the case, as we do not engage in such practices. The reason why a Dream count might appear higher than what can actually be seen is because Dreams are counted even from areas that aren't public; such as Staff Members who post in staff sections, members who have private clubs, and so on. There are even uncredited areas such as these guides which still count towards the Dreams Count of any given Dreamer.
