Hey, I just noticed that the post count is no longer a part of our posts. Anyone else confirm this or am I just seeing things?

it looks like it's still in your profile.

If you want to make a statement, post thoughtfully, or make good use of your avatar. Post count is a useless statistic that, when translated into minutes, shows how much time you're wasting. :)

I guess that now we will see what effect it will have on the dreaded post padders.

None what so-ever. Why would it?

Hahahaha, lately my post count has been in reverse anyway, because I'm usually posting in those threads of silliness that get moved. :crazed:

Only bad thing is now people will have every desire to post pointless spam posts just because they can. Hope that rule doesn't get pushed aside just cause the post counts aren't there.

I don't really mind the postcounts being invisible (They aren't gone, after all). As long as the ranks stay I won't really mind, they're sort of fun.

The post count is indeed still in your Profile. I removed them from the thread pages simply because it is not needed and of course, in hopes to cut down post padding. If you want to see someone's post count, click on their profile.

It's the best solution, I concur with our esteemed leader. Not gone but simply helping the pages to load faster. If I remember right I voted for this to be the solution I think. I still want to see how much I've posted so I can regulate myself. If the number rises quickly I've been talking too much. But it isn't constantly in our faces now and things have slowed down around here lately so it really isn't neccesary to see it all the time. From a keeping an eye on people POV. I haven't seen much evidence of post padding in many a long week now. Which can only be a good thing.

I don't care either way. I never payed attention to the counts, only the titles.

I thought you left?










Anyway, I think its a great way to cut down on the post padding. I'm happy for the change.

Just wanted to flash a pair of horns on this one, as I was always into getting the whole "post count mania" thing put away too.... Like Caesar and Emperor Howdy, my count has been pretty much at a standstill for a long time, and it wasn't making me lose any sleep....... Ideally this move'll help streamline this place a little bit.. wonder if it'd done any good back during full moon madness?
Ahhh, who cares, it's better this way now. Good move guys!!!
WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!
