Re: Vanished.....

We need some way of showing value to the forum though - if not reputation or post counts then what.....?

Re: Vanished.....

I suppose you can still see how long someone has been here. I did like the rep thing, shame it was misused

Re: Vanished.....

Would be good if post counts exclude the leisure lounge (Not digging at Neo I'm serious). In fact I'd have a pretty crap post count if you did that but it would show how trusted a member is for giving advice better.

Maybe that's not possible though and if not I reckon they should be there as they are.

Re: Vanished.....

no richard i would have to disagree with you there, for some reason and even neo has admitted it he is after getting the highest post count, so if you had the post count in other sections and not LL then it would encourage spamming in those areas for those who have a post count goal and it would be a pain for us mods to control.

This was discussed a while back when we had a problem with spamming, but recently it has got out of control, we dont mind fun threads but some of these are just created for upping peoples posts counts or some threads are being abused for the same purpose.

Re: Vanished.....

Hmm OK then - but I still think a post count is better than no post count.

Re: Vanished.....

the point of no post count is to ease the amount of spam, would you personally prefer to read pages and pages of rubbish, it looks bad for the forum, maybe it will be brought back when things calm down - i have no idea, we will just see how it goes
