Post counts

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Is it my imagination or have post counts re-appeared, I am sure that they were removed for a while, or were they visable all along.

Personally, I think we were much better off without them. No one is going to post just to increase their count which must mean better content.

They were gone for a while, but we decided that having them off didn't really change anything, and besides, the other mods want to embarass me by having my post count visible to all.

Having them visible also makes it incrementally easier to know when you've posted enough to get a custom title...

Makes me think back to when our registration dates extended before 2001...

No matter. Thanks for bringing back the post counts, even though my count is small.

speaking of post counts... any chance we could get a recount script done?
the gap is more then 70 posts and well over 1000% of their actual post count for some users

I ran vB's post count calculator this morning. Post counting under vB is quite buggy, as some of you have noticed, and so the developers thoughtfully supplied a "slap sense into me" button.

Post counts will drop, sometimes by hundreds of posts, but that's probably because those counts were off by hundreds of posts.

Thanks for your patience.

That many of your posts were hanging chads. Get over it already.
